Ok ill be nice.... SORRY Anyways.... BEFORE I START MY DRIVE WORKS AS I BURNED MANY DVDS BEFORE USING A SONY DRU 510A. I just reformated my computer using windows 98 i reinstalled everything, and i wanted to burn one of my games to test.... OK.... I made a global image using recordnow dx it took 2 and a half hours so i let it run, than i go to burn my global image works great to a point.... it goes to 23mins than jumps to 234 mins it still burns the light is on when i stop the burn i can see it writes to the disc. So i guessed maybe its the software, reinstalled nothing.... Heres a special case now... I use dvd decrypter i decrypt the dvd a blue screen pops up " Unable to write to disk in drive e (thats my external hard drive connected by usb) data or files maybe lost" and the speed is 0.2X whats that about. So i use nero i try to make a nrg file works great good speed until i get to about 16% i get A device attached to the system is not functioning. So i said lets try a dvd movie so i use Blade using dvdshrink it works great again but at about 65% i hear grinding sounds and it stops. Nothing works is it... A: The hard drive B: The dvd burner (Sony dru 510a) C: My computer (Cant be cause it worked before the reformat) D: DMA setups (I always click the damn thing restart and its unclicked again) E: Some type of drivers or anything missing F: Virus/Spyware G: All of the above. I hoping for a fast response cause i wanna get back into burning again.
