    You burner shouldn't be on the Primary IDE channel for a start!

    Your burner needs to be on it's own channel for good speeds and to have DMA enabled.

    Also, instead of using MS Paint to get screenshots, download a program called "FastStone". Version 5.3 is free. That's how I captured the shot above!
