I have a very new Toshiba Laptop and a farely new Sony DRX 710UL. I use it to back up my work files regularly and Nero Burning stopped doing this anywhere from 8 to 23% through. The drive indicates that it is still burning but Nero has locked up. I have updated to the most current firmware, updated Nero, unloaded all the other burning software on the computer and I am at my wits end. The really bad part is that I went out and bought the new Sony drive to fix the same problem I had on an older, yet adequate DVD burner and ran into the same situation: The Nero software stops working after awhile. I have seen the same problem on many other posts, tried all their solutions to no avail. Any advice would be appreciated.
