CD writers not working on 2 PC's

#1

I have 2 PC’s at home and they both go idle after 5% of a burn process. Occasioanlly after a long wait (3+ mins) the process will resume and a the burn will be successful.

This happens in Alcohol 120% and Nero and with 2 different types of media.
It seems strange to me that the Exact same thing happens on two different PC’s with different Drives.

I have repeatedly unistalled the programs, the drives themselves and cleaned the registry and it still happens. I have also completely removed Alcohol 120% (and its SCSI drivers) and have never installed Clone CD or Daemon tools
