I might have found the problem but im not 100%.
I talked to a friend of mine today and he has a burner as well. Well I guess he has a low end power supply and it wasn't supplyin his burner enough power to burn his cd's correctly. He was getting a similiar problem. Well I know my system is a lot more beefier then his and im only runnin on a 300 watt with 2 hds, 2 burners, a high end cpu, and multiple devices connected to usb. (webcam,zip drive, i pod) so that very well could be the case. Same reason why I can't get my AMD cpu to run at 3200XP i think anyway. I can only run at 2800 else I crash due to ram failure. I've even swapped in new ram and still the same thing.
This would also explain why i can only burn at 4x on my cd burner and not its full potential of 24x because when the cd winds up to burn it just shuts down due to lack of power ( i believe ).
Is this a possibility?
Either way I'm thinkin about upgrading to a 500W power supply to keep my beast running.
