I got a Buslink 52X (LiteOn 52246S) recently (with the staples deal). I installed it and it gave me BSOD on many occasions. At first I thought it was the InCD software, so I use Nero Burning ROM instead, but the problem presist. I only have CDRW disc.
Generic desktop, Duron 750, 512MB PC133, KT 133 chipset, has been working reliably (absolutely no freeze or whatever) before that.
Windows 2000 SP3
BusLink 52/24/52 (LiteOn 52246S) - firmware 6S07
Nero/InCD/PacketReader, etc from the included CD. Updated Nero and InCD to latest version on Ahead's website (this Monday 2/17, I forgot the version number).
CDRW drive is Secondary Master, LG 12X DVD-ROM is sec. slave, both UDMA
The problem seems to appear at different time, mostly but not limited to the start of the program (Nero or InCD). The message is usually cryptic has only one line (on a blue background). I had to reset the computer by hitting the button.
I realize this may not be enough information to diagnose the problem, I was hoping at least somebody may be able to point me in the right direction.
1. Could this be the fact that all I have is CDRW disc and InCD is 'fighting' with Nero, causing the problem, I am going to uninstall InCD, just to test.
2. Can Nero and DirectCD work together, I like the convenient of the 'big floppy disk' promise.At work I use Roxio Easy CD Creater/Direct CD. Packet written CD by Nero can be read by Roxio, but packet written CD by Roxio cannot be read by InCD (I wanted to do some work at home last night, but lost my files).
3. I made a bootable CD (using CDRW, Win 2k, which I legally own, with SP3) last night. It booted OK on my desktop. But when I put in in my laptop (1999 vintage, 300MHz celeron), a flashing red 'INITIALIZING CD...' came up and never go away. Does older computers have problem with CDRW disc?
4. I did not get a CDRW disc in the box (not really complaining as the price was so low), but it would have been nice if they include a 24X disc (all I have are 10x and it took a lot of time to experiment ).
I am a little new to the CDRW world, sorry if some of these may be stupid questions.
Thanks in advance,
