Have a gigabyte 7n400 Pro2 board with an Athlon XP 2600+ and Sony DW-U10a DVD±R .
My problem is I can’t seem to burn any DVDs at all. So far have produced 10 coasters. Only success has been is with a DVD-RW. Tried Nero and Ez CD. After clicking the burn button DVD-R (Mirror Platinum 4x also tried datawrite) gets to 1% and then just fails a few seconds later…although did manage 11% once. Have tried changing DMA settings to UDMA 33 and Multi Word DMA 2, checked bios but with no luck. Also have changed master/slave setting, changed IDE’s.
Are there any issues with this board and that burner, or am I missing something. Please help. I feeling like getting a hammer and smashing the drive into little pieces!!
