The problem: My Sony DRU-842a is not working it will not write the Ubuntu ISO I want to burn. My pc is a dell dimension 2350.(old as heck i know but it gets the job done)I have put in sony cd/dvds and memorex as well. I am getting frustrated. The drive is a 20x and I have seen it go to a speed of over 100x and I don't understand why. I am currently using win xp sp3 and its just brutal. Its not that fast and I want to go to ubuntu and save my self the hassle. The drive is set up to be the master drive.
