I note that Buffer Underrun Protection is ‘off’ - I thought the 140E had this feature…You should also make sure that UDMA devices are running in that mode & that the writer is not on the same IDE channel as a PIO Mode disk…

Couple of things you can do here,

>Writing to CD failed, MEDIUM ERROR: WRITE ERROR - RECOVERY FAILED <

  • you might want to try to change your media to another certified brand and make sure when you write you do chose laser power caliberation to make sure the laser is aligned correctly with the disk. Some times some media can be quite fussy and act a bit peculiarly.

  • I used to have an identical model drive at my work and to the best of my knowledge I don’t recall it to have any options for Buffer Underrun protection.

  • In this case it would be quite essential for you to have your HDD completley defragged once in a while, as fragmented drive can contribute to some inconsistencies in the constant data streaming that your drive needs and could cause premature burn or buffer underrun.

On the other hand if you have bought a high quatity of your existing CD Blanks, you might want to experiemnt with a lower burn speed to over come this problem.
