Default Buslink 52x External CD-RW Drive w/ Nero

sponsored links

Hi- I am new to the site and would greatly appreciate any help you kind folks can provide.

I work in a small GIS lab and we store alot of data that is continuously being updated and modified. For this reason we recently purchased a new external CD-RW drive so that our 3 PC's could be backed up every other week, mainly w/ RW discs. I did alot of research and read user reviews and came to purchasing the buslink UII-RW52E. It cam bundled w/ Nero 5.5. In addition we also purchased adaptec 3100lp USB 2.0 pci cards.

That said we are having alot of problems with RW's in particular. Regular CD-R's are generally ok but still pretty unstable with about a 50% success rate on the first burn iteration. From what I have figured it is not the USB card, but either the drive or the software.

The most common errors I recieve in the progress window when I start burning are "fixation error" and "logical unit not ready".

I have tried many scenarios/permutations of the suggested processes in the help guide but nothing seems to work. Btw/ I am using discs that are deemed ok by buslink. Unfortunately their tech support is horrible and has not been of much help.

Thanks in Advance.

Fixation errors are usually media related. Have you tried different media?
Are you burning multi-sessions, the technology is unstable at best.
