I seem to have found the "trigger."
Any task switching away from the burning app, BAM, app freezes.
Again, THREE burning apps. And only ONE type of disc in this one burner does this. Remember, I have SIX DVD burners and have never seen this
I've have since burned quite a few TY's at 18x with zero failures, even under heavy multitasking load. With the Verbatium DVD-Rs, any switch, even just to my media player, and boom, burn freezes.
I can not think of anything that could explain why it would do this with only one type of disc. Maybe a firmware update will help
BenQ 1655, BenQ 1620, LG 4167, Plex PX-716SA, Samsung SH-S162L, SH-S182M, Pioneer 111D, Lite-On SHM-165H6S and 1.9TB of HDDs to feed 'em and an X2/4800 to crunch for 'em.
