Hello, helpppppp I used DVD decrypter/IFO edit. Plays fine on the PC, so I believe it ripped fine. Using A04 DVD-r with the firmware upgraded and the latest Nero version 188.8.131.52 I was getting communication error, but cured that by turning off DMA. Now, it starts to burn, and will stall at various %'s complete (25%,13% 33%). Program doesnt lock up, just stops burning, no errors. What did burn will play in PC DVD player. I did read on Nero's site about Via busmaster driver problems. Any ideas anyone? Thanks in advance, B.
