    Okay - I'm absolutely puzzled.

    I have no drag-to-disk or RW software installed (InCD, Easy Media Creator, etc), but no matter what program I use, burning dual layer DVDs freezes my PC. Windows just freezes and sometimes BSODs.

    But here's the rub - burning single layers works fine. And when I burn a dual layer on Linux, it works perfectly.

    Any ideas here? The drive is obviously fine as I can command line and software burn in Linux, no problem. But Windows freezes, every time.

    Reinstalling XP didn't do the trick.

    Oh, right. It's a Lite-On internal IDE, 12x, all format burner.

    Not sure on the model. WinXP and anything - DVDFab, Nero, CDBurnerXP Pro, etc. I took out the drive today and popped it in another windows PC I have and it worked fine.

    Use Nero's Info Tool and it should tell you What your Lite-On drive is.

    Are you sure you have enough Memory?
    Are You Multi-Tasking?
