Firewire Problems

I am having a problem reinstalling my fire wire CDRW on my Sony Vaio 801a laptop. This drive worked without problems prior to the re-formatting. I have used the same restore disk as usual in re-installed Windows ME. I have tried with and without the latest upgrades from MS. I have tried the latest Nero, CloneCD and Roxio packages and they all exhibit the same problem – they all fail on the lead-out portion of the copy. I have put the CDRW drive in my desktop and the drive works without problems, I have tried both a Lite-on 48x12x48 and a LG 32x10x40x16 combo and they both suffer the same error. I am beginning to suspect the firewire case but just need to rule out USER ERROR…. ie me naffing it up………
