DVDRW on my machine at home. works ok 30 days. i use PENGO and MEMOREX media. Works ok. writing at 4x or 2x. no problem.
Error at 4x on several disk. Error on simulation too. I write at 2x... work nice at 2x..
Clean OS, no AV, no software. SImulation at 4x: FAIL.
Change ATA cable, change Master / Slave settings, update Via drivers, update BIos, Update Firmware on DVDRW> 4x test simulation results: failed
DVDWR was installed on office> win2k, office 2003, pentium 3 500mhz, 256 ram. WOrks ok!!!! Several testings> works ok. no error.. no error on simulation, no error on writing, works ok with NERO (i never was able to use nero with my DVDRW on the original system)
Test the DVDRW on another XP machine. simulation error at 4x... 93%... the same!!
