Where did I go wrong with the maifun noodles?

Help! I tried to make Mee Krob last night, but when I tried to fry the rice sticks, only bits of it actually puffed up and some of the rest of it almost burned, so I had to take them out! Was the oil too hot too fast? Did I maybe have too much of it in the oil at once? I'd love an experienced opinion on this. I basically just took the noodles out of the package and fried them in a wide pan in about 3 inches of rice bran oil, turning them over every once in awhile. Should they have been fully immersed at all times and deep fried in a fry baby? I hope someone can help.
