I had very similar occurrence yesterday. Turned out I had jumper set incorrectly. This happens sometimes as I swop hardware around and sometimes forget to check other jumper setting.

try updating your nero software.

Try selecting the burner from the list before you start the burn.

In my case Image Recorder was the only option.

I guess this can happen when anything is wrong with the connection - jumpers, cables, mobo connection etc..

Have you changed this drive or loaded a new version of Nero recently? I ask because given you have got all connections and jumpers right, you may have an OEM unit which will only work with its original bundled software. The quick and dirty way to find out is to open up Nero - in the initial splash screen it will give you the version number if it has in brackets next to it a manufacturer i.e (yamaha) or (sony) this tells you that you need to upgrade to a full version of Nero as suggessted by mole44 above

Not OEM.

As stated MY problem was that I had taken a unit from a PC where it was master and put into another PC which already had a master without changing jumper.

Have you solved the problem yet? I was trying to help - not hijack your thread.
