Ok, a little background:
I have two burners, a Pioneer and a Lite-On (models don’t really matter right now)
In the past, I had the Pioneer as the Master (on the end of the IDE ribbon cable) and the Lieon as the slave on the middle of the cable.
Now I have put a new PC together and this time using round ATA133 IDE cables.
And also reversed the drives.
Make the Pioneer and Slave on the middle connector and the Liton the master at the end of the cable.
I have (of course) set the jumpes on the back of the units to reflect this.
They both read DVD’s fine, and I have been burning a few DVD’s with Nero using the Liteon master.
Tonight I tried buring with the Pioneer, and it started to do the burn. But before it even got to 2% (and Neros buffer kicked in) I got a burn error.
Tried with two blank disks and the same thing.
Changed to the Liteon drive and burned fine.
Before I go into any more details, any obvious reasons this might happen, or things I should check?
