Nero freezes at 3% and then crashes computer burning audio cds
Hi thanks for all the help in the last post so i was wondering if you could help me with this now
Basically I will try to describe the problem as detailed as possible and i really hope somebody can help me.
When burning audio and data cd's and using a variety of media (including cheap to expensive) Nero (both express and burning rom) doesn't go further than 3-4% and then it freezes. However when i press stop it freezes further, the cd keeps on spinning, my system crashes and i have to perform a manual restart.
I am using an external dvd writer connected to usb 2.0 via a notebook card.
I am not using any other usb devices or running anything unneccesary in the back ground that takes up power or memory.
I also did a search on similar questions and the problem is not the one where nero keeps sending the scci thing (sorry i don't remember exactly) everything loads up fine, the cache is loaded, burning starts and then it freezes,
I am using windows xp with service pack 2.
Also, every now and then it seems to work perfectly (both on 48x and 40x) for example yesterday i succesfully burned 2 audio cd's in succession, the third failed with this problem.
I really hope someone can help me, I will be so so grateful as I'm a bit silly with computers and don't know what to do
thank you very much in advance
