I run EIsystem laptop with Samsung cdrw/dvd sn 324f drive. When burning cd at the higher speeds the drive ceases to operate with the above response. The only way to avoid this problem is to reduce the drive speed from 24x to 10x or below. I use roxio creator 6 and have even updated this to 7.5. Roxio claim the problem is not theirs. EIsystem are a Dutch company selling through PCWorld with a "foreign website" PCWorld do not want to know as it is out of warranty. I cannot find any updated drivers. Any suggestions?
Thanks for your comments although perhaps I should add (i) I always burn with nothing in the background (ii) When I first bought the laptop it did burn 24x. (iii) of more concern the drive gives up on more resource hungry projects ie converting a sound editor file to an audio cd. Any suggestions?
