i bought an 3520 drive 2 months ago and was very pleased with it. I have always been flashing the drive with the latest liggy & dee firmware. Now, I have this strange problem wich started about 2 weeks ago.
The first DVD+R disc I try to burn is always a failure, the second attempt at it always is a succes. When I burn the first disc my drive makes a weird sound when writing the lead-in and the lead-out. I don't have this weird sound when burning the second disc. This problem happend to me 4 times in a row so I don't think it is pure coicidance.
When I Check the back of the first disc, I see there is actually data written on the disc but I am unable to read the content (recongnises as a blanc CD) in both my 3520 and my standard DVD-ROM drive.
I use Mitsui (taiyo Yuden T02) DVD+R 8X discs , I burn @ 8X (8-9 minutes)
OS: Windows XP PRO SP2, Nero burning ROM 188.8.131.52 and I am currently running firmware version 1.U9.
Any help is really appreciated.
