Burning with Ricoh MP9120A

I have a Ricoh MP9120A CDR-CDRW DVD drive.  First, just out of curiosity, does anyone else out there have this drive and have they noticed odd things about its operation, like it often doesn't like to open its drive door?
My question concerns using Nero 5 and burning CDs with Memorex (and other) media.  I often will start a burn, it will just start to spin up the disk and I'll get a "medium speed error".  I get the error at any burn speed, with or without "Disc at once".  It doesn't _always_ happen, but quite often.  Any thoughts about some of these inane errors when burning with the Ricoh MP9120A would be appreciated.  Thanks.

Hi Plytle,

We use these and a number of other similar drives such as HP and Plextor in systems for customers. They are reliable, however depending on the system in which they are installed, their operation can be tempermental. They were designed around Intel bus mastering, but largely the new 80000 series chipsets, so on earlier systems it tends to take longer to interrogate the drive for the presence of a disk, and for the drive to signal that it is being disconnected (drive open).

Now, as to the medium speed error, that is a drive problem, not Nero. Contact your supplier and request that the drive be replaced. This is a known issue with some Ricoh models.

Without at least one reply from the questioner, this one would be difficult to deal with. I'd delete it.

The problem was resolved by updating software from Ricoh - replacing the drive wasn't the right answer, so this should probably be removed.
