Pioneer DVR-111D writing errors

Hi I am an extreme novice, I have gone over the forums with similar issues without finding the answer.
Basically when writing all looks well to a certain % ie 11% then errors appear - “hardware error:logical unit communication time out (4:0x08:0x01)” another error "hardware error:no additional sense info (4:0x08:0x03). Software used was clonecd version 5.2.6.1. Also Nero 7 whish doesn’t give errors just goes through the motions of burning but there is no info on the disc.

Running Windows XP SP2…

Any help appreciated…thanx
