Yesterday's rant update
After coming home yesterday, I decided before messing around with the DVD burner I would rip a few more DVDs to the hard drive. Well, now the drive doesn't work at all. It recognizes DVDs and CDs, tries to play them, and then freezes. Games running off a CD? Freezes. I'm going to try messing with the IDE settings but I doubt it will fix it. Saturday is my day to mess around with this stuff, but I'm pretty convinced that trying to focus the layer for the second layer broke the lens. It's lucky i have two back up internal DVD-ROM drives laying around.

Fuck you I/O Magic. I'm pretty certain you sold me a defective product. I either want a new, free replacement drive from you or I'm buying one from a different company. Dual layer DVD burners from Sony are on sale for $25.

Current Mood: disappointed disappointed
Current Music: Rebel FM Episode 1

Go with Sony!
The Sony drive that I think I gave you in my old PC had to have burned over 1000 single layer DVDs with no problems.

I remember having trouble getting dual layer set up the one time I tried, before giving up.

I reinstalled the Sony this weekend and am very pleased with it. Only single layer but that's find for now. I'm just going to abandon the I/O Magic and get the Sony dual layer burner this week.
