  1. I was trying to burn an image again using a new DVD burner (plextor) and
    roxio that came with it. was going well until i reached 51% and got this
    error:

    power on reset or bus device reset occured - Unit attention



    What does that mean, what can I do? I tried everything, changing the cables,
    getting a new drive, win update, adaware, no antivirus or nothing... I'm
    desesperate!

    This is probably a DMA issue.


    Yup.

    Get rid of Roxio crapware.

    Get Nero, watch problems disappear...

  4. Nero, Roxio, or whatever, no difference, my computer just cant seem to
    handle making DVDs. DMA issue sounds like the right diagnostic, problem is,
    even if I select all channels as "DMA if available", current transfer mode
    stays in PIO in a primari IDE channel, I'm just getting a new computer!

    OK, my bad, didn't know you had tried others.

    I have a PX-708A myself, and have had NO problems with
    the DMA issue. Is your MB chipset a non-Intel one? If so,
    you may need to get drivers for it from mgfr, and the latest ones
    may NOT be the best. You'll just need to try them all until
    you find a set that works. WinUpdate is worse than useless at updating
    hardware drivers and often makes things worse. If you're
    using the Intel Application Accelerator crap, remove it.

    Also temporarily try putting the Plextor on a cable all by
    itself, as master, with no other devices.

    And try Ultra ATA cables, even if theoretically you should
    not need them.
