I've tried 3 different models of DVD burner in the last 2 days. An I/O Magic, a Lite-On SOHW-1673S and I now have a Sony DRU-800A in my computer. They all seem to be giving me the same issue. I get about 50% through burning a DVD -R and suddenly the computer will just completely reset. I get no opportunity to get error messages or anything because the program doesn't even have a chance to register them. I've update the firmware on each of the burners and it hasn't helped. The only thing I've really got to go on is a 'power calibration error' that I got in nero on one of the rare instances where the write-error didn't completely shut my system down. Is it possible that my power supply can't handle the burner's demands? The power supply in my system looks to be a 250W unit.
Otherwise my system specs are:
Windows XP professional
AMD K7 1.1 ghz with 768 megs ram
FIC - AZ11E motherboard
... and the rest probably isn't important.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

It sounds to me and just looking by the behaviour that or it's a memory problem, or a driver problem.
It could also be an overheatig problem. You say it completly shuts down. The windows xp setting will force a reboot on your PC uppon an error message (aka blue screen).
Most of boards have a system nowadays that shuts down the pc in order to prevent permanent damage on the board and processor.
Also, there is a powerful tool on windows that nobody uses it. It's called Event Viewer and it's where you can find information about problems and system behaviours. You can acess it by typing eventvwr on the command prompt or just go to administrative tools. Search for an error message. I'm sure you'll find someting more concrete there.

I tried increasing the size of the windows paging file and the next time got a blue screen "PFN_LIST_CORRUPT - STOP: 0x0000004E" error. I wasn't able to find anything at all on that error. Anyone have any ideas?
