You edited your post and removed the connection mode results. You then reported that a firmware update fixed the problem. This is not true. The problem was fixed because the firmware update caused the drive to be redetected, and DMA operation was restored.
In the Device Manager view that you deleted, the DVD-ROM was operating in UDMA mode 4. The burner was operating in PIO mode, which was causing your problem.
WinXP sometimes spontaneously disables DMA for a drive and reverts to PIO mode. The workaround for this issue is to remove the IDE channel to which the drive is connected to and reboot. The IDE channel and burner will be redetected at system startup and usually DMA operation will be restored.
This problem may repeat, and if it does, follow the workaround above.
