LiteOn SOHW-1673S External Burner Communication Failure

Whenever I go to burn through Nero, I get a Communication Error.

I read through this post http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=132447&highlight=communication+failure
and found that my IMAPI was already disabled, I’m only running Nero, and the IDE cable problem doesn’t apply to me because I’m using an external drive over USB 2.0.

I have a 1.8 GHz Athlon XP with 1 GB RAM running XP Home SP2.

Here is my log:
