I have had the chance to take a look at a Compaq r4000 series notebook.
The problem with the drive is it errors out whenever burning Music CD's or Movie DVD's.
I can burn DATA DVD's with out a problem, but when I try to create a DVD Movie on a DVD, Roxio errors out and just freezes. At times I get an error saying I need a SCSI device to create DVDs...Im assuming this means that the drive is not recognized. The movies are either Divx or avi files, home videos and other content.
When creating music cd's, the error simply states that the cd cannot be completed. I have tried with Roxio, Nero as well as with the built in windows burning engine and with Media Player 10. Music CDs wont burn. I have tried different media as well, but same issue.
Any one run into anything similar?? XP SP2 Home is installed on the notebook along with EZ Media Creator, Alchohol, & Clone CD.
