I have purchased a new pc. A 1.4 gighertz And Athlon 128 mb ram and 40 gig hd. I took my Hewlet packard cd burner out of my old machine and installed into the new pc. It will not work. All I get is buffer under run errors when I try to burn anything with it. Also the mother board is a SIS M810LR if that helps. I am runing Win ME. Thanks

First step is to make sure your software and firmware are updated so they will work on your new system and OS.

If you are still having problems and the MB has a Via chipset, download the latest 4 in 1 driver patch from Via. Sometimes helps with burners.

Hopefully the burner is on the same ide as the device your trying to copy from. Generally better on secondary and not with hard drive.

If slipes recommendations don't cure it go to device manager, if dma is checked on the burner uncheck it.

Limit programs running while burning to avoid bus congestion.

I have Adaptec Easy Cd Creator 4 it is up to date as well. How can I tell if I have the Via chip set? Thanks

Buffer under run fixed. DMA had to be enabled on the source cd rom. After I enabled it my buffer did not get any lower that 97% :) Thanks for all the help.
