Burning problems

Please can someone help I have:

Reader - Plextor PX-130A
Writer - Plextor PX-716SA

I cannot for some reason copy CD’s on the fly using the above hardware, I can however rip from the 716SA to the hard disk and copy, but this is all.

Why can I not copy on the fly, I thought I had bought good hardware or does the reader have to be a DVD writer as well?

Please can someone help?



Are they both on the same IDE cable? If they are, I personally wouldn’t recommend copying on the fly.



Unless the drives are in ‘perfect’ sync - you could get a ton of errors-

‘On the fly’ is not a very good burning method IMO-
