Hey everyone- new to the forums...
Sigurd- i have the EXACT same problem. I bought the TS-H552u burner a few days ago. I'm using it on my laptop computer, running windows xp (it's in a Vantec Nextstar 5.25'' enclosure...)
I've tried using Nero (updated), Sonic RecordNow...and the same thing seems to happen everytime- I have YET to make a successful burn. I always get write failures. It'll go to 5%, i can see it's working..(the orange LED will be on)...and then it'll go back to green...and it'll just fail... I've made about 4 coasters already.
I'm not a computer wiz or anything, so I ask...how do I update the firmware? will that really make a difference?
I'd really, really like to get this to work. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
