A bought a LiteOn 32X12X40X CD-RW (LTR-32123S) a few weeks ago and it has been driving me nuts ever since. Most of the time when I try to burn something it comes up with an error. I use Nero 188.8.131.52 that came bundled with the burner. I have tried to burn files from my hard drive, music CDs, and game CDs. Most of the time it comes up with the following error: Communication failure Invalid writestate Could not perform EndTrack Burn process failed at 12x (1,800 KB/s) I’ve fiddled around with the IDE cables and put them in different arrangements but I still get the error. I’ve put new IDE cables in to make sure the old ones weren’t faulty – still fail. I took it to a local computer shop to get them to have a look – it burnt like a charm (files from my hard drive, and a few CDs). I took it home and tried a burn and still I get the error! I took it to another computer shop… and it worked fine there aswell! I took it home and tried a burn (exactly the same process that the people at the computer shop used & the same CD-Rs) and it still failed. I am really, really confused here… help please. Could it be that other things connected to my PC like a printer, modem are causing these errors? Here are some of my specs if you need them: » AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1.2 GHz » ASUS A7V mobo » AOpen HX45 MID Tower ATX » AOpen FSP300-60BT PSU » 256 MB PC133 SDRAM » Quantum Fireball Plus AS 20.5 GB 7200 RPM HDD » Hercules 3D Prophet II MX » Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live!
