    I recently bought an I/O Magic 8X Dual Format DVDRW Drive and I have had a bunch of problems with it. I would just like to make sure there aren't some easy fixes to my problems before I take it back and get a Sony like a should have in the first place.
    I try to burn a dvd I created in Vegas 4.0 in DVD Architect (v1.0) but it always craps out on me at 8% after the lead-in. Also, for some reason I can only select a speed of 2.4X in DVD Architect (might be because of my media, but I'm not sure) I'm using Memorex DVD+RW discs. I/O magic tech support is only so helpful, but here's what I have done already from what I found on their formus. I updated the firmware for my drive, but it didn't help. I made sure that this drive is Master on secondary IDE and my other CDRW drive is slave (I already knew it was, but it didn't hurt to check). Finally, I read that many people had this kind of error due to their secondary IDE settings somehow being changed to PIO mode instead of DMA if available. When I checked, I found out that mine had been changed to PIO so I put that back on DMA. STILL NONE OF THIS WORKS ! I'M STARTING TO THINK THIS DRIVE IS JUST CRAP! Please help!

    I don't really get an error message. It just hangs up at 8% every time. The drive quits showing any activity and you just have to cancel the burn process.
