Hello experts here at CDFreaks!
Don't know if this is the right place for this kind of question, but I give it a try...
I'm having trouble to burn DVD-R discs (haven't tried any other type of DVD) with my TSSTcorp SN-S082H on my Zepto Znote 6625WD laptop. In Nero the burn starts well and it says in the beginning it will finish in about 10 min. after a while the remaining time counter will reset, and the burn completes after 60 minutes.
After that when i try to read the disk it is empty. The discbrand is TDK DVD-R 4X data/video
I've tried to burn using ImgBurn today so that I can post the log from the burn, I've experienced the same thing, the burn lasted for 60 min. and it failed when it come to veryfying. When looking on the burn speed while it is burning it varies from zero to 2.4
It will burn CD-R correctly at full speed, but with DVDs its always the same problem
It's a Core2Duo processor at 2.2 GHz and the amount of ram memory is 2Gbyte, it is Intels motherboard with 965 family chipset. The computer is set on AHCI mode in bios and under the device manager i windows the IDE channels are set to DMA if available.
I updated the firmware and applied rpc1 to SB01 firmware and that worked fine, but I still have the problems to write DVD discs
Here is the log from ImgBurn
