Re: CD-R errors. need help

If you're running WinXP, it has a nasty habit of resetting your Optical drives from DMA mode to PIO mode when it encounters a sector read error.

If in fact you're using windows, check Device Manager and see if your Secondary IDE Controller is using DMA. If it isn't, you need to delete the controller, and then reboot. It should reinstall itself and set its mode to DMA.

See if that helps.
