New guy here and I can't believe I never found this forum until now! Anyway I just purchased a new SH-182M and a Lite-On LH-20A1H. I had a problem with the first Samsung (major burning issues/system freeze) and had to RMA the drive; hence why I also snagged the Lite-On and playing around with both drives. In Nero 7, I am unable to do an "on the fly" burn using Nero Burning Rom if the Samsung is the source drive and the Lite-On is the destination. I can use the Lite-On for "on the fly burning" when it is the source drive and the Samsung is the destination. I'm wondering what is causing this issue and/or if this is normal. I've tried different media, and put the Samsung on it's own PSU input. I suppose I should try to reinstall Nero 7. Both drives have UDMA Mode 2 selected on the secondary IDE channel.
Here is my setup:
Samsung: Secondary Master Drive D
Lite-On: Secondary Slave Drive E
Nothing on Primary IDE port (hard drives are SATA).
Dell Dimension XPS Gen 2; 3.2ghz; 2gig ram.
Thus far, no problems buring at 48x on the fly with the Lite-On as the source and samsung as destination.
Any help in sorting this out would be appreciated as I like to do direct disk copying.
