I >HAVE< the pics - I just have no ability at this point to post them here, as the forum does not support pictures directly (they have to be linked from an external source).
I take it you mean that you think the "Buffer Underrun" error wasn't really indicative of an underrun, but an error that Nero could not otherwise identify (Nero pulling a Microsoft)?
I suppose that would be a question for Nero - and they are LOUSY at actually answering questions like that - I STILL have never seen a "proper" answer to their "Medium Speed Error". I wish there was a good alternative to Nero (yes, tried v6 - HATE it - tried NTI, don't like it very much - HATE all the VCD "image" type proggies - HATE Roxio - yes, I'm very opinionated
Guess the point is going to be moot now, since I ordered the LiteOn (not bad for $39.00 shipped + $4.99 for an extra year warranty - yeah, I almost didn't take the warranty, but I said what the heck). I'll be returning the Samsung to Best Buy as soon as I receive the LiteOn.
