purchase: a usb2 external pioneer dvr-109, i got off ebay. in external enclosure with cables appearance: brand new, switches on fine, and reads blank disc when inserted problem: won't bloody burn. i use nero 6 with no problems, and previously use a 2x dvd writer on my laptop. i have tried to copy disc to disc, burn compilation... it would cache the files and say burning process started (i've tried various speeds). Used read buffer goes to 100%. But then it stalls at either 1 or 2%, and the drive doesn't respond at all. The only way to fix it is by swithcing off the dvd writer, and switching it on again, in order to eject the disc. I've treid various media, TDK DVD+R and I thought problem was DVD+R, so I got Datawrite 8x titaniums. Still doesn't bloody work Hope someone can help, or I'll have to complain for a refund!
