CD-RW communications error

Hi, I have just purchased a BTC CD-RW Drive 52x32x52x. I am Using Nero 6 demo version on Widows XP Pro. When i attempt to burn a cd it begins to burn but after a few seconds i get the message Communications error.
I have checked all the cables and checked out the drive in Device Manager and it says working correctly.
any advice what can cause this error please.
The disks i am using 1-40x compatible, could this be the problem?
thank you

Sorry to cut in here, but any advice on the opposite problem. I have a CD-RW with an arthritic 24x4x4 speed, and my Nero 6 is telling me that the my drive write speed isn't fast enough for my Disks! Why does it matter to the Disks what the speed is? I bought hundreds of the bloomin' Disks, do I need to change my CD-RW?

Not sure what to advise you but it looks as though you need to try different discs perhaps someone else here can help further.Regards
