Nero, my system and LG 4120b DVD burner problems.


a week ago I bought an LG GSA-4120b DVD burner. Burning CD-R music compilations with Nero 6, I've been getting these two issues even after discarding the nVidia SW IDE driver:

1. I get coasters. Sometimes (1 out of 4 CDRs let's say) it fails the burn process (at various progression marks), giving a "illegal block size for command" error. Curiously, nowhere on the Internet can I find an explanation of this particular error.

2. When I use the "Determine max. writing speed" option, Nero reports it can only write at 16x instead of 40x due to "data source speed too slow" but nonetheless it reads the data at around 100x. What gives? I'm having the MP3s cached on my Seagate HD and using the tempfile strategy with buffer underrun protection activated...

Can anyone help? Until I resolve these issues (with your help hopefully), I won't burn in other software as I like Nero and it's integrated components, plus it burns just fine on my bro's VIA chipset AMD1800+ system with this burner or another.

P.S. Yes, my HDs are Primary Master + Slave, and my burner is Secondary Master, 80-pin rounded cables used. Could it be my FSB overclock?

Never mind, I re-installed Windows and everything's working like it should be now
