    I have uninstalled factory programmed nero and updated to nero 7 premium and still no dice.

    My problem is every time I try to burn a cd, the burn process gets to 7 % and stops. I f not there, it goes all the way to 98 % and stops. Either way, I cannot seem to successfully burn anything currently. Could this be virus related or do I just need some type of lens cleaner? :mad:

    I have no idea what that is. I prosper in mobile audio, not so much in computer stuff so you have to be a little more in depth. haha.

    Yea sorry about the typo

    Does that mean it worked before you updated or that was the reason you updated to get it to work?

    And is this a combo drive CD/DVD combined?

    it was the reason I updated, yet it is still doing it, and yes it is a combo drive on my Laptop. Gateway 7510 GX if that makes a difference.

    The drive is TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-L532A , i believe.

    DVD is the same thing but odd percentages... very random. And are you talkin about through Media player... if so yes it will but it takes almost a day to rip one 12 track cd, and about 4 hours to burn a copy.

    Understood....

    Go to Device Manager by pressing
    Windows logo key + Pause Break key
    and in the new window Hardware tab and Device Manager button.

    In the list open the small + sign beside IDE controllers double click on the Secondary IDE
    and then in the new window click on the Advanced Settings
    and check that the Transfer Mode is DMA if available and Not PIO and that the current mode is DMA.
    Aslo Check the Primary IDE
