    DVD/CD Burning Problems*$5.00 paypal reward*

    I currently have a hitachi cd burner and benq dvd burner, i recently got a new case and rounded ide cables and used the above mentioned drives in my system. Before i changed cases i had no problems whatsoever using dvdshrink and nero to copy dvd's or burn cd's. Now all i am getting is errors, i have no idea what is going on. I have tried re-downloading nero, as well as dling the incd fix that was mentioned on nero's site. Ive also tried using alcohol 120, nothing seems to be able to copy dvds. I also have problems when burning cd's using nero, the cd's will burn fine in windows media player, just not nero. Nero says i have a communication error. Can anyone offer some help, this is really getting to me.

    edit:5 bucks for whoever helps me figure this out

    Have you tried going back to your old cables?

    nope, may try that as last resort, the communication error would make me think it was the cables, but then windows media player has no trouble

    reading != writing.

    I think it's your cables. Many rounded cables are longer than 18", and I have had many problems because of this.

    check if the dvd drive is using DMA and also if everything on that cable is using DMA.
    You can find this in control panel->system->device manager button->properties of IDE channel.

    I had a problem where I had a DVD (master) and a CD-RW(slave) hooked up on the same cable. The CD was using PIO mode and the DVD was using Ultra DMA. This was causing problems (power calibration and other random errors) so I took off the CD and just had the DVD on Ultra DMA and it cleared up my problems.

    Hope this wasn't too confusing and that it helps...
