I've been having a terrible time with my computer. I bought a cheap DVD burner (internal) a month or so ago, and it wouldn't work but just kept on crashing. I thought it was just down to me being stupid and buying the cheapest burner I could find.
So today I went and bought a new one (Speedy 16X DVD Writer), installed it, and am getting the same thing! The burn process begins, then everything freezes. I cross my fingers and hope it will work this time, and it doesn't.
I have legitimate copies of Sonic DVDit and Roxio, and have also tried burning with DivX and with Cheetah DVD, and always the same problem.
I've updated the drivers and firmware. I have the pin in the back set to master and this is my only drive so that is fine too.
Also the drive reads cds and DVDs perfectly fine, and Device Manager says it's functioning correctly. I am at my wit's end - can anyone throw any light on this? I just want to burn an effing DVD...
