need help with NERO v5.5

SCSI/ATAPI time-out error

i've gotten this error three times now. the first two times it happened was when i was burning the same data -- tried once (coaster) tried again (coaster). it happened at the same spot about 4% into the burn process. the third time it happened was when i was burning some other data and it stopped at 65%.

nero didn't give me much information to work with. it showed the "read used buffer" and the "recorder buffer" at 0%. i was using cheap PNY CDs (80min, 8X). the burner is a lite-on 16x10x40x that's the master on the 2nd IDE channel. the data is on a quantum plus LM that's the slave on the 1st IDE channel.

i think that's about it. any ideas? i'm thinking it might be the hard drive -- there's a bad sector that's causing the burner from getting a data feed to the point it times out? that's about all i could come up with.

burning some mp3s from the HD.

also, the burner seemed to be working properly tonight. i was burning mp3s from the same HD, but i avoided the directories that caused the problems last night. i'm working on the assumption that there is a bad sector or cluster(?) on the HD.

Run a ScanDisk and Defrag, and/or try burning at a slower speed. Regular defragmentation is key if you burn lots of stuff from a hard drive.
