My sister in law has a PIII 1.7 with a 40gig hd and 256megs of memory.
I have just installed a LG8520B 52x24x52x burner and am having the following problem.
Burning an image to the HD is ok and works like a charm. But as soon as you try to burn to the LG drive itself about 10% is burnt and then the burn is aborted with a Communications Failure notice.
This happens irrespectively if the burner is placed as a master, slave or even on its own IDE port.
