SCSI Burner - Video problem

System Info.

Tonight I was copying a CD for the first time in about 4 months. I was writing @ 4x and everything was going fine until the very end of the copying. At his point the completion meter got stuck at 99% and the burner started to blink in some strange patterns. This went on for about 1-2 minutes then the video on my monitor went out. Itlooked like a narrow band of blue with lots of white distortion mixed in. I couldn't recover from this and had to reset.

Any suggestions?

update your video, and scsi controller card drivers...this will clear up any driver issues.
After that, check the resources in the device manager (computer icon at top) and make sure that these are both on their own IRQ (is okay if they share it with something called "IRQ holder for PCI steering")....this will fix any IRQ conflicts.
Also try ending task everything except explorer and systray by hitting "ctrl + alt + del".
And finally, close down any power management and screen savers prior to starting the burn.

This should help

First thing did you try to burn another CD to rule out media problems with the disc itself??
Bad disk are as common as bad floppies
