I was burning a DVD and got this error
LOGICAL UNIT COMMUNICATION CRC ERROR (ULTRA-DMA/32)

I looked around and couldn’t really find out ‘what’ it means, i’ve been trying to find if i need new firmware(i have 105C — came with dell). Any help would be appreciated.

It means your IDE cable is crap. The top hit in Google™ points to a CDFreaks thread that say as much. http://www.google.com/search?q=LOGICAL+UNIT+COMMUNICATION+CRC+ERROR

You need to use a flat 80 conductor IDE cable, if you have one already try another one. The master drive should be at the far end of the cable.

got the same drive with my 9200/try another SATA channel and check the back of the drive for connections. If you don’t have a spare cable you need to pick one up online. They are dirt cheap at the right places. Keep us posted and call Dell if it persists. They have excellent service/
