EAC crashing on test/copy

Hi - running the latest version of EAC with a Lite-On XJ-HD166S DVDROM. Both are new to me-- EAC replaces Audiograbber and the Lite-On is part of a new DVD burning rig I’ve outfitted myself with.

EAC works fine for me when running in strict copy mode, but consistently crashes every three tracks or so in test/copy. It finishes the test on a track, looks as if it’s going to spin up the drive, then locks up (and locks up the drive along with it). Am I doing something wrong? Are there known issues with EAC and this drive?
