    I take it you're doing "on the fly" copying in which case the disc being copied needs to be read as fast as possible in order to keep a steady supply of data to the burner.

    If I understand your post correctly, you used to do disc to disc copies with your slot load ROM and your 106 no problem but now when doing disc to disc with you slot load ROM and the Lite On burner it fails at 70%.

    If you drive errors out reading the disc it's usually either a dirty/scratched disc or corrupt data.

    DVD players will just skip errors that will cause a ROM to error out.

    Many problems can be avoided by having the software write a temporary image to your hard drive.
