I checked the bios and AHCI is turned off as default. Any way of showing that it is turned off in Windows, I can’t seem to find it. The JMicron controller refers to the IDE port no? In that case no It’s connected on a SATA Port.
I’ll give IDE mode a whirl and see how that goes.
BTW, a few hits later on google and here show that others are also having similar sh-s203b problems with ImgBurn. I’m starting to think this particular samsung drive doesn’t play nice with ImgBurn and it isn’t the drive’s fault. I guess I could pull out an old disc of Nero I have and do comparisons. Can you recommend any other burning software preferredly freeware.
Some other suggestions from my search:
1. Turn on Auto-Play (I turned off in XP)
2. Switch SATA ports (All right)
3. DVD+R Reserve Track (On by default in ImgBurn but still during these problems)
4. Firmware update (Will flash to S04)
5. Chipset update.

If none of the suggestions above work or the problem still exists in Nero then I’ll request a RMA with Newegg. I’ll post later with some results.
