Assuming that you have two hard drives, you could temperarily connect the secondary hard drive from ide1 to ide2. If everything works, you have a problem with your old optical device. If you have the same problems, it is the motherboard.
You could also make your old optical device the master and the new device the slave. If that works, leave it.
If you did not have two hard drives, put your old optical drive on ide1 as a slave of your hard drive. You then should have success with 'quick copy', 'on the fly copy' and 'burn at once', which may not be such a bad thing. But seeing as you do have two hard drives, put the slave hard drive that was on ide1 to be a slave drive on ide2 as well. You should be able to isolate the problem.
I would also try another cable for ide2.
