    Hi welcome to NTFS ...... first up go to nero.com and get the latest version and also when you go to copy the cd ... lower the burn speed I have a 48-16-48 but I find that some cd's need to be burned as low as 4x most work at 12x but some are just a little tricky ..... so update your nero and then try at a lower burn speed ;)

    But...I would say, try here: Ahead Nero


    You could need a patch or update.

    I wonder if the communication error has anything to do with slave/master setup... was replying on another thread and thought of this...

    would seem unlikely as the error would manifest itself in a different form... but still no harm in checking if your devices hgave the correct slave/master configuration...

    Ok lets break it down ......... can you burn anything at all on XP with the burner ? ....... even just a few files to a data cd ? ...... or is it when you try and copy a specific cd?
     
  9. i cant see how it can be the config setup, cos its worked fine on win98, an even in winxp it reads cds etc, its jus the point when i come to copy? im thinkin perhaps its somert to do with the admin part, cos i av winxp pro? an as a administrator on it perhaps theres somert in there that wont let it start to copy?
     
  10. no mate cant start to copy anythin at all, it comes up with that same error

    ok stupid question but need to ask...... open nero and look on top and you see ( recorder ) go there and choose the recorder, and in same window you see a ( more ) button press that and see if exact link is enabled........
     
  12. no theres not a more info thing on it, its jus got the recorder drive on it with some stats about it, and its jus got an options thing, about buffer underrun, theres no info?
     
  13. but on the info, its got something about the error that i get......i get the error 'could not perform start of disc at once' on the info bit it says 'disc at once : cuesheet DAO/96'

    hope that helps u understand?

    has DAO been disabled? not sure where to check this in the settings, but it would cause problems if it has been.

    Check Nero's Help System: http://www.nero.com/en/index.html#c1002822798638

    Check your drive's site for support. Some drives are not supported by Nero, this info is available on Nero's site as well. Your drive's site may have some info/firmware.

    Might wanna try a different app, like fireburner or something. If the problem is common across different apps, you know it's a hardware config problem. If it doesn't repeat, you know it's a software issue.

    If all else fails, contact Nero's support group at www.ahead.de. They have a good reputation for responding quickly and providing working solutions.
