  1. I have recently upgraded to AMD Sempron 2200+ 256 mb DDR but since then i 'vent properly burned any CD.. My CD RW drive basically has One LED with 3 different types of colors.. GREEN for read RED for WRITE and ORANGE for (i dont know really but i think it is for) reading from buffer while writing.. I start the copyCD with both source n destination drivees the same one my CD RW drive. It reads the CD and i think copies the image but while writing process it starts OK and RED LED goes on & goes for abt 30% or 50% or 60% or to some random percentage and LED changes to ORANGE .. and it stops.ANd finally i've to manually switch off my pc andCD becums a waste What could be the prob? The alignment of the drive not proper? or some BUS card not properly fixed? or CPU mobo compatibility issue.. someone pls suggest..

    go to device manager and check the ATAPI\ATA IDE controllers and make sure that the drive is using DMA and not pio mode.
