My burner is acting like a sack of shit lately. I get a coaster like every other burn. Yesterday I was trying to burn some data files onto a DVD and it kept freezing up the PC when I would put the blank DVD in. Finally it worked.

Today I'm trying to burn a DVD and it keeps making this fucking clicking noise and it's freezing my PC again. It's freezing when I either try to open the drive with the blank in or when I select the drive from an option list. It has also failed after 3 burn attempts, not even making it to 1%. I put in a regular DVD and CD and they both worked great, no clicking or anything. So I'm wondering if it's the burner taking a dump or something with the DVD blanks or what I'm burning, etc...

How old is the burner, what kid of discs are you using and what software are you using to burn?

Sorry, that first post was more of a rant...

Anyways, it's a NEC-3500AG burner and it's about two years old. I've tried FujiFilm and I forget the other brand I was using. I'm 99% sure it's not the media though. I know FujuFilm is shit, but I stole them off my old room mate, so they'll have to do. I was using Nero and Alcohol 120% to burn.

Tried a firmware update?

Yeah, I'm not sure if 3500A and 3500AG are different, but the program said I didn't have the drive when I tried the 3500A...

Now all of a sudden it wants to work. What a sack of shit. I'm getting out of the computer field and getting into knitting or some shit that actually makes sense.

I'd suggest Paintballing.
