P4 2.4, W2K sp2,on Aopen AX4PE Max, using Nero 6 and BHA's Gold5. Gold 5 came with drive. Not both on computer at same time.
The drive is master to a DVD ROM as slave on secondary.
Have 2 Hard drives on primary.
1 hard drive on third IDE at 133 as single.
When I try to write a Data CD on the drive it returns an error 2ae00000, An unexpected ATAPI I/O occcurred.
Then goes on to say check etc etc.
Have checked jumpers ok.
Have changed IDE cable an checked security of all cables.
No errors showing in Device Manager. All drives show up OK with no problems.
Have disconnected drive from third IDE.
All with same result.
However there is no problem with DVD-R writing, or reading DVD and CD discs. Has worked well up to now.
Have come to conclusion that drive US.
Any thoughts ideas of anything else to try before it goes back for attention?
Have searched for the error but no joy.
Recent work/additions carried out- Update to latest Nero 6, round IDE and floppy cables fitted-Third hard drive fitted to the third IDE channel. All have been reversed with same problem being apparent.
