    Welcome to TechSpot

    You need to turn DMA on on that drive.

    To do that, right-click My Computer on the desktop, select Properties, Hardware tab, Device Manager. Doubleclick on "Secondary IDE Channel" on "IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers", then Advanced Settings tab. Set the "Transfer Mode" to "DMA if available".

    See the attached image for more help.

    I tried that, and it was already set to "DMA if available". Then i tried burning the CD again and the same problem occured.

    here's the error log:

    Usually if a Writer was working and then stops. It may simpy be some needed maintenance.Clean the read heads.
    Also check the status of your Temp file(Delete contents) that stores the Buffer, it may need to be emptied.Check the availible Disk free space. Defrag your partitions.
    If you changed media brands that can be an issue,so you could go back to the old brand ,update firmware ,update Nero.
    I am not sure about this ,but your error message shows a free memory level of 45 Mb . that is not much memory .You may have too many background Apps open.
    To test turn off all extraneous programs in Task Manager including Screen savers etc. then try another burn.
