    I've just installed a new cd rewriter, which almost works. I tried to copy a cd and it had nearly finished when I got the message 'SCSI/ATAPI Command Timeout Error'. What does this mean, and how can I prevent it? I was using Nero, which came with the drive.

    Check loose connections. For me, that error mesage looks like the interface has lost communication with the unit. As you don't mention which brand the unit is, I can't give you more details... Post reply if you can.

    If you have power management features enabled, either in the control panel and/or bios, disable them.....

    Also take a look in the control panel, settings, system, device manager, cdrom, properties, and uncheck DMA.......
