When I burn a dvd movie with recordnow the drive spins up and stops about six times before it burns. Some times the disc plays ok but most of the time it skips at the begining and locks up, or the xbox/panasonic player doesnt play it at all. So a freind brought his 106 round and that burnt a movie i had ripped fine (played on everything). I thought it could be the hacked firmware i was using so i forced it to the latest official firmware and tried burning the same movie and it was speeding up and stoping again and the disc was not recognized in anything even the 105, i also tried burning some avi files to a disc and that wasn't recognized so it doesn't seem to work at all now. So do you think i should just scrap the drive or could the problem be solved?
