Is this a disc-to-disc copy? If it is, you shouldn't try copying them at higher speeds because the transfer rate is too slow to keep up with the recorder. Try changing the speed to something lower, such as 8x.

no not disc - disc from hdd to disc

I just done a search for your problem, i found this that seems to say you should defrag your computer.

There's a couple of possibilities. One is that your data source can't keep
up with the CD-R; try using disc-at-once writing from a disc image with the
speed set to 1x. If it seems to be getting worse over time, you may just
need to defragment your hard drive.

At least i have bumped you up to the top of the page again .

Heres the page i was reading.It says try recording at 1x !!

will degraging ur hard drive delate any files? are does it just sort it out?

Quick question.

You have four IDE devices (your 2 HDD and 2 optical), are these all plugged into the motherboard or are any plugged into the SiS PCI IDE controller?
