I am new to this, but if anyone can help me I would be extemely grateful. Please help!
I have a Abit KT7-Raid motherboard that I have recently upgraded from Win 98se2 to Xp sp1. I have been using a Pioneer DVR-105 without any issues under win 98se2, and since upgrading to XP, I cannot get it to write correctly.
Small files are ok. Larger files (e.g 27Mb) do not copy, the system starts to copy and then after a few seconds the light on the dvd writer goes out. The copying pop up carries “copying” on but nothing happens. If I then close the copy popup, the system goes unstable. (mouse becomes jerky and I have to reboot). explorer.exe seems to fail to respond when trying to reboot and I have to hard reset. When looking at system resources, the system idle process is 98% and CPU usage is 56%.
I have the latest version 1.33 Pioneer firmware and the latest Via 4 in 1 drivers installed (v 4.51)
According to the via idetool, I have Ultra-DMA mode 2 [ATA33] selected.
