Yah so I've had my Dru510a for about a month now. It originally came with a version firmware. I'm running a P4 2.4b, 1GB DDR, 7200rpm 8mb western digital hard drive, a shuttle XPC ss51g model computer and winXp. More then substantal to burn anything you want. But here is the problem. I attempted to duplicate a DVD, burn an audio cd, or anything else other then a data cd. Nothing will burn to the DVD. I have tried using Pinnacle, Nero, Easy CD, DVD X Copy, Veritas, and a few others. The only one that I can get it to burn anything is the software that came with the drive. I have tried nero and the used read buffer shoots to 100%. All the other software just sits there burns a bit to the disc then just screws up. I have updated the firm ware to c, then recently to d. That didn't work so I though I would change it from DMA to PIO and give it a try. Still the same thing is happening. I have tried quite a few things and still have no idea. I cannot create anything other then a data disc through Veritas and even then I get many coasters. I have tried formatting and reinstalling the OS with the same results. The drive is on it's own IDE channel set as master. Any help?
