I opted to buy the SH-S203B to replace my old generic 4x IDE DVD burner. I installed the SH-S203B and it shows up in BIOS and XP just fine.
I then used Nero to burn some MPEG’s into a DVD I could put into my living room DVD player. When it was finalizing the disc, it BSOD on me!!!
The drive also hangs explorer whenever I try to open my computer or windows explorer. It shows up, but it takes up to 10 seconds for ANY of my drives (including my hard drives) to even show up. Its like frozen until the drive letters appear. My old generic DVD burner didnt do that. Nor did my computer do this before I installed the new drive.
Anyone have any suggestions on what this might be before I go return this thing?
