recently I have been having a problem copying my DVD's, I have been puting all my home video on to DVD and everithing has worked well to give other people a copy was ok as I did this on the fly as I have 2 drives but all of a sudden when I hit the burn button the buffer fills up but after 2-3% the buffer drains for no apparent reson. Anybody any Ideas

Yeah Powerless been there done that, that was the first thing I thought, but using NTFS on C:\ &D:\ defraging is not an isue

Sorry madboy I'me not sure I've never had the lid off

If you've copied DVDs in the past with no problems then IDE1 or IDE 2 will not matter as it would have caused problems right at the beginning.

well if they are both on the same IDE channel then you can not copy on the fly

who is the system made by and all the specs please

he is saying that he is trying to do it "on the fly"

I have the same setup (altho) its a CD-RW drive...Both on IDE1 using a 80wire IDE cable i can copy on the fly no problem. In saying that i've only done it a few times...

i was allways of the opinion that if both drives were on the same IDE then you could not copy "on the fly" as it had to go through the CPU 1st

i stand corrected
