GEAR HEAD 24x DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R Black SATA Model 24XDVDINT
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet Drive, Reads anything, Burns quickly

Cons: Does NOT last...
Drive acts like it has a timer built into it for when to die on you

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these from a major chain retail store and put one in each of my two desktops. One desktop I use heavily for burning, while the other has seen almost no disc burning at all. Almost at the exact same time, suddenly neither one will burn a disc (errors every time).
I always burn my discs at the lowest speed, and use name brand disks (mostly Sony DVD-R's). Burn failures started when trying to burn a game onto a dual layer DVD+R (after having burned a whole spindle of the same disks in the past). So I tried it on the system that never burns anything. Error after error no mater what I'm trying to burn and what disc I am using. I have wasted too much money on these drives...
Checked, cannot find a firmware update. Uninstalled Nero, tried using every program out there, even trolled the forums for an answer. Nothing works.
Not exactly sure, but i swear the problems started right after a windows update a while ago.. but cant remember when it started exactly.
