I just bought a new 40125w and i'm having real problems copying CDs. This is my first Cd writer, so I may be doing something wrong!
I have 2 x Hard drives on my primary controller and the burner and a DVD drive (aopen 1040) on the secondary one. I have tried the burner as master and slave and there is no difference.
When I try an on-the-fly copy of audio and data Cds I get a 'Communication Error' in Nero. The log file shows this :-

I have tried the same via cloneCd and I get a hardware error.
If I use clonecd to create and image then burn it (including simulated) it seems Ok - but only wrte at 18x on 32x media (Imation) and also on 24x Sony media.
Should I be able to connect the burner and DVD on the same cable, or should they both be slaves to the hard drives - but will that slow them down ?
Shouldn't the speeds be faster anyway ?
I'm using Win2k sp2 and the latest Nero and S05 firmware inthe drive.
Help me please before I go insane...
