Heya, if you have been reading the posts you would have noticed that I have posted a couple of 'Anyone getting these dumb-ass errors' questions... Had not much in the way of replys, but thats oki... I have come to the following conclusion, IT'S ME I have recently reinstalled Xp Pro version, and all the software I normally do along with Nero (updated to 188.8.131.52), Sleazy CD-Creator 5, RecordNow Max 3.40 and as far as I know I have the latest drivers for my Pioneer A05 (but as far as i can tell everyone refers to it as the 105) with flashed 1.33 FW. Now i have had numerous probs getting this bad boy to burn dvd's at the mo (I am now wondering if I have to rebuild my stupid machine and there maybe something wrong with an installation somewhere) - Let me show you how I got to this conclusion and maybe someone can shed some light on my problem. - I can't burn full dvd's with nero, sleazy cdcreator, win-on-cd. It does a test burn in Sleazy and gets to the end, reports and error of some kind and stops (good thing, atleast I don't waste a dvd-r), NERO starts a burn (after doing the test successfully) but then hangs after 2 min after only doing a 1% burn (which I can see is only the 'lead in'). Win-on-cd does the same. - The only programme I got to work to burn an 4.3gig ISO is RecordNow Max, but now I want to back up one of my dvd's and have extracted the VOB's, compressed them with DVD2One and now want to use nero to burn it. Now as you can guess this isn't working and I can't get RecordNow Max to burn a dvdmovie. Now what i need to know, has anyone come across anything like this? Does anyone rekon a total rebuild would sort this out, or am I doing something wrong - that one of you can show me the error of my ways. MEDIA - almost forgot. Using the green bulkpaq 2x dvd-r's (not probs until last w/e now all coasters due to nero), and recently was at a computer fair and the dude there 'PROMISED' that these new datawrite reitk 4x's would work 'just fine '. They have a blood red lable on front if that helps anyone. Any and all replys would be appreciated, at your soonest as I am going to loose it and build the bloody PC on sat. please guys, if you all can dig deep and help out, mucho appreciato.
