I am having problems with my DVD Burner. It is detected and will read discs but it won't burn anything to disc. I always get a message about loosing communication or something like that. I have a NForce Chipset which I use AppleNForceATA for it to work.

It could be a problem with your DVDRW - some have problems with it in Windows 7 too.......

The AppleNForceATA.kext should have no problem with a PATA (IDE) DVDRW jumper-set as Master and connected via 80-wire IDE cable as Master to the IDE socket on the MOBO, enabling read/write.......

However, SATA DVDRWs are not supported by the AppleNForceATA.kext because as far as I am aware, MeDevil has never released the source code for his 32bit AppleNForceATA_TEST.kext for SATA DVDRW support; only the source code for his 32bit AppleNForceATA.kext with PATA DVDRW read/write support has been released.
