Problem_Nero_7.2.3.2_ASUS 1608P3S_Queue Again Later_ Reset Occured

Below is the log file.
shows lots of “queue again later”
and then ends with “reset occured”

burning DATA CD’s or DVD’s works perfectly fine.
when disc to disc copying occurs this error pops up.
happens on both cd and dvd copying, and regardless of whether
the cd is close to full or only 2/3 full.
I’ve tried setting the DMA for the device. all is on “use dma if available”
but the slave of 1 of the bus is just not using ultra buffer. all others are
(at least in the device manager properties.) somehow nero’s log still shows DMA off.

thought it was a firmware thing, so i updated to newest firmware,
but still same thing. changing drive speeds doesn’t affect it.
updating drivers for motherboard, and graphics card didn’t help either.

tried changing media, doesn’t help.

Drive was only purchased for few months.
sent back to supplier but they say they test it to be okay.

so tried it on friends computer.
It works fine on friend’s
system with exact same media and also nero 7.

motherboard is Gigabyte GA_8I915P
Sound card is Creative Audigy 4
Graphics card is NVidia GEforce 6600
DVD-Rom = AOpen DVD ROM
DVD-Writer = ASUS 1608P3S
writer and rom is connected on a different connection

CdRomPeripheral : ASUS DRW-1608P3S 1.19 [B]viamraid[/B] Port 2 ID 0 DMA: Off

You’ve got RAID enabled on the PATA-channel?? Turn it off in the BIOS.

thanks a lot for tip, got it fixed, here’s what happened. tried diabling the RAID, then realized it couldn’t find my writer anymore. then remembered my machine only recognised some of the HDD and rom drives connected to some ide buses after i installed the motherboard driver. so i checked my motherboard, and saw that the 3 ide buses, 1 of them were red, other’s green. so i reversed the connection, put the writer and rom drive on the channel that could be detected (the red one) regardless of the driver(the raid stuff i think) and connected the HDD on the other ide. now things burn just fine. Thanks a lot about the RAID tip. really appreciate it.

Glad it’s working for you :slight_smile:
