Yeah , I tried CD-Roller and ISO Buster, not tried CD-Check.
Thing's driving me mad now, bought some TDK media and some Sony.
From reading more posts, I guessed that the issue I had may be due to mainly packet writing most disks previously (drag n drop) I am now trying Alcohol 120% (this works but only with images (ISO, BIN's etc and I've only tried it with CDR's as I can't figure how to make a 4gb image file from my data) and I am also trying Stomp Record Now Max, but I don't think it recognises my drive somehow. It sees it, but always fails to complete any DVD-R disk (any type of media) seems to fail right at the finalising disk stage, further strange is that my computer can read the contents of the failed disk, but it is impossible to open or copy any of the data.
Wasted all weekend now entirely reloading PC from scratch and trying all sorts of fiddling but still no joy (except for Alcohol, which will burn images to CD) Am I unique in having so much difficulty? Is the MSI drive a bad choice?
Asus A7S333 MB, latest Via 4in1 drivers, 105 revision BIOS, 1gb DDR, MSI DR4-A DVDR (Firmware 1.50) set as secondary master, LG CDR (set as secondary slave, though I have also tried with this removed from the system) Athlon 2600+, Huge bald spot from all the scratching
Sorry if this is the wrong forum.
P.S. Mumbelby is made up as someone already had my surname here, though my alter-ego now seems strangely apt.
