CDRW wont write

hi,

my CDRW has stopped being able to write to or recognise blank CDs. It still works fine as a regular CD-ROM and can read all CDs. it gives the following error message in the Event Viewer:

" Details
Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 11
Source: Cdrom
Version: 5.2
Symbolic Name: IO_ERR_CONTROLLER_ERROR
Message: The driver detected a controller error on %1.

Explanation
This problem is typically caused by a failing cable that connects the drive to the ***puter.

User Action
Replace the cable.

Version: 5.0
***ponent: System Event Log
Symbolic Name: IO_ERR_CONTROLLER_ERROR
Message: The driver detected a controller error on %1.

Explanation
This problem is typically caused by a failing cable that connects the drive to the ***puter.

User Action
Replace the cable "

I’m pretty sure that the error is not with the cable and is in the configuration somewhere. I have tried uninstalling the drive and the IDE controller, and i have run a Registry correction program but it still will not work.

I have also tried updating the drivers and installing the latest version of Nero but it did not help.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks

I just checked the registry and the

Current CD write speed is set to 4294967295
Max Write Speed is set to 52
Drive Type set to 1 (it is a CDRW/DVD-ROM combo drive)

this sounds wrong, is it?
