Asus CRW-5224A or Nero?

The computer is built with MSI KT4 motherboard,Athlon2100,512Mb DDR,two Maxtor 60GB hard drives,Asus 52x CD and a 52x52x24 Asus CDRW with an XP operating system. It works with no problems except the CDRW, with Nero, fails after anywhere between 50 - 70% completion. This is in all modes and at all speeds. The only meaningful thing to me in the error log is the two words 'Communication Failure'. It seems to work OK with XP. The CD and CDRW are on IDE2 as master and slave respectively. I have checked the bios settings and device settings aginst an identical set-up except the CDRW is a LiteOn 48x12x48. I am totally perplexed.

Make sure cd writer is connected properly, un-install nero and install latest version... for copying CD's, i suggest Clone CD though.

Recently bought an Asus 5224, installed as a slave to HD, wouldn't work, spent a week trying to figure out why, eventually went to my local computer shop, they tested it and coukdn't make it work even whem installed on other machines, they fitted a benq 4816 and everything is fine, working perfectly with nero 5.5 and inCD!

Noted advice and tried a download of Nero instead of the bundled copy which alledgedly was the same compile. As far as I can tell it now works OK. I have no response to e-mail from either Nero or Asus.
