my sh-s183a sb03 on Intel DG965WH Mainboard with all latest drivers and firmware, SATA set to RAID took to a strange behaviour halfway through a 25 spindle of DVD+R Verbatim 16x media (ZD8076-DVR-T47D): When starting the writing process, the drive spins down after the lead-in, making a horrible screeching sound, tries to spin up again and hangs. Nero 22.214.171.124b will then hang and the drive will blink furiously. Speed was set to 18x or 16x, same results. The first 15 disks of the spindle were burnt correctly before. (Same result with Nero 126.96.36.199, BTW).
Should I take the drive back, has anyone experienced a similar behaviour and would be willing to help?
