#9 Samsung sh-s203n Won't burn images


When I try to burn an ISO image to a file, it seems to get stuck on the filling buffer stage and then fails out without writing anything. I am running under Vista Ultimate 64. In XP on the same computer I don't have any trouble. (Go figure).

Here is my program log:

    I was just searching for this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that don't rank this kind of informative web sites in top of the list. Generally the top web sites are full of garbage.
