Cd Drive Hangs during Nero burning

  aca 15:01 06 Oct 04

Tried everything. Disabled XP burning. Burning process starts but after 6% stops. Tried cleaning lens, tried different Cd-Rs, tried different speeds, drive wasn't being recognised as CD-R/RW drive by XP but changed this, reads disks ok, tried unistalling.

Other drive works fine

any suggestions gratefully received

uninstall the ide channel the drive sits on and reboot.

I had to upgrade my copy of Nero as it came up with incompatable with this operating system when I tried to run it - see my post in SP2 forum for version numbers

I ignored the warning nero came up with when i installed sp2, no problems since.

i should've added that it's a good possibility though

Try going into your CD drive controller (IDE/ATAPI controllers, IDE 2 normally) in Device Manager and altering the read/write to PIO. Remember what it was set at originally in case you need to go back. You could also make sure that you have the latest firmware for your drive downloaded and installed.

Would "DMA if available" not be a better option??

seeing as it would revert to pio if it wasn't.?

Unistalled Ide Channel, no joy

I have swapped round cables and fault is not repeated on other drive so not fault with cable

Thought now is that may be drive that is knackered although haven't used it a great deal
