so when you say the burner is connected to the connector closest to mobo? The end conncetor on an ide cable is the master, the other is the slave, the end by itself is the mobo end.
Ok, I couldn't remember which way it was. Could this be the problem? I have the jumper set for master but it's in the middle IDE connector. I knew it was something stupid... I'll try switching them around.. Thx Duck
