I hate to be responsible for a bad night's sleep, but I just finished a series of burns working just fine on Firewire. Closed down firewire, reinstalled 220.127.116.11, restarted CloneCd and it froze up tighter than a drum, requiring a reboot.
I uninstalled both, installed 18.104.22.168 first, then CloneCD and all is well again. If it helps, when CloneCD starts here are the drivers:
ELBYCDIO DRIVER 22.214.171.124.
I'll be glad to run it again if you can tell me the details you want from the the 126.96.36.199 install.
