dvd burner problem

  gedster 17:30 24 Oct 2004

i have an external dvd writer, the pikaone 4x. I have problems burning DVD's (CD's are ok). I have tried various media including Verbatim and Maxcell but the writer does not seem to like them. I think I need to update the firmware but have been unable to find one for this writer. Any advice would be welcome.

what are you trying to burn to DVD and how does it fail?

I am trying to burn dvd video. The burner initially accepts the disc and the light changes to indicate burning but stops after about 30 secs and ejects the disc. It then closes the draw and Nero goes to 1% and then says failed. There is no data recorded on the disc.
