This is going to be a tough problem to pin down, but I'd like to start somewhere... "SOMETHING" is wrong with my computer! I'm not expecting a specific solution off the bat, but hopefully I can get some directions to investigate...
Here are the symptoms:
1) I cannot burn DVDs using my new Sony DRU-820A DL DVD burner. It generally gets most of the way and then returns one of varying errors (depending on which burning software I decide to use).
2) I cannot sync with my IPOD via USB. I don't remember the specific error, but it times out or says "device not available. HOWEVER, I can load the same songs from the same PC to my IPOD when it's attached to my laptop and networked to the original computer.
3) I cannot copy a movie file to my PSP. I get a message something like "too many layers deep". HOWEVER (again), I can copy the movie file to my PSP from the same PC over my networked laptop.
SO... I'm thinking something is awry with my communication bus or with some drivers, because all my problems center around the use of devices. Other that that, the operating system and networking seems to work fine.
I'm running WinXP Home SP2. I have a four year old Dell XPS desktop with an ATI All-in-Wonder 9000 video card. Over time, I've upgraded most every driver and bios, so I've probably caused the problem.
Where should I start looking?!?
