SONY DVD RW AW-Q170A problems in recording

Hi

I recently bought a SONY DVD RW AW-Q170A and mounted it on an external drive casing. Everytime I try to record a full load on a blank CD (have not tried a DVD yet) I get an error and the writing stops. I have lost 5 CDs this way. If I try to record small amounts of files, it does so beautifully. I hav etried with Nero 5 and Nero 6. I saw that several users are having problems with this dvd writer and thought maybe someone can help.

Following is the error log:
