I recently purchased an NEC ND-2510a for DVD burning. This is not in the NEC forum because I don’t think the actual drive has anything to do with it. This is my problem:
Whenever I burn anything, especially a long burn (greater than 5 mins), my computer reboots. Yes, just reboots. Just happened while burning a dvd-r. New coaster. Wonderful. Also, sometimes I get a blue screen, where it freezes. It says the stardard garbage…and this:
Grrrrr. The reason this has nothing to do with the drive (I think) is because I had the IDENTICAL problem with an old CD-RW drive I use to use a long time ago. Coincedence? I think not. Did I spell coincedence right? I think not.
Some important observations:
That old CD-RW used to work fine UNTIL I installed Windows XP Professional. I recently formatted and installed a fresh copy of Home for comparisson…same thing. This lead me to believe it’s not a software problem. Or it is a Windows XP problem in general.
Just recently, I stopped getting the blue screen and only reboots. This was after I swapped some IDE cables around inside…Problem with my motherboard? I dunno.
Please, someone help me out. This is very very frustrating.
