I’m having a problem with a PX-708A writing to CD-R’s. Nero Burning Rom freezes after the lead-in portion of the burn whether writing or simulating. The counter keeps ticking but the buffer never fills up and I can’t close the program or shut down the computer. Trying to burn CD’s in Plextools results in very ‘choppy’ audio.
I RMA’d the drive to Plextor who sent me another but this also has the same problem.
It all used to work fine but over the past few months it’s stopped for some reason.
I have the latest VIA Hyperion drivers, and the drive is on its own as a master on the primary IDE channel using UDMA2
So far I have tried…
Updating the drive’s firmware to 1.10
Updating Nero to 126.96.36.199.
Changing the jumper from Master to DMA
cleaning the drive cable (40pin)
Using the standard IDE drivers
Different types of CD-R
Can anyone help with any other ideas, i’m stumped?
AMD FX51 (slightly overcloked)
