I’ve had a 48/24/48 (48246S) writer for a couple of months now and so far it’s been burning great, no duff CDs so far. I recently installed a OEM LiteOn 165H DVD Drive, and that also worked fine, but now I can’t seem to burn any CDs without getting CRC errors.
I can burn the images fine in Nero, but when I come to copy files off the CD I get a CRC error. I’m pretty sure this has been since the drive was installed.
I’ve read several problems referring to DMA and dodgy IDE cables, is this likely to be the case? I’m not burning too fast (12x) so I guess that isn’t the problem, should I just try replacing the IDE cable?
I’ve also tried unplugging the DVD drive but that hasn’t helped, the cable appears to all be in correctly as far as I can see, can it really just break that easily?
