Problems Burning Movies with my Lite-ON DVDRW SHW160P6S

I have a Lite-ON DVDRW SHW160P6S DL Burner and am having difficulties with burning. I use NeroExpress as the buring program. Once I hit burn, half the time when the burn starts, it will write a little then it will fail due to “communication failure”. This will happen once or twice, then it will burn and burn several different movies in a row, then after a period of inaction, it will happen all over again. This happens whether I use a DL or a standard disk. What can I do to correct this?

Check your IDE cable and make sure it is connected snugly. Also, try making sure that you burner is set as Master on the IDE, and it’s always good to use an 80-wire ide cable.

Not to sound too dumb, but how do I make sure it’s the master IDE? Thanks.

Yo-

Check the jumpers on the back of the burner - there is a guide above them ‘CS’ = Cable Select ‘SL’ = Slave "M
A’ = Master - the Master goes on the end of the cable and the Slave goes on the middle connection on the cable-eh!

thanks. I will buy the cable that was recommended and I will also do what you said.
