go into the device manager and see if the hard drive is in PIO mode it should be Ultra DMA also your burner should not be on the same channel as the harddrive and you should also be using an 80 wire ide ribbon

 

Start ,right click my computer ,properties ,hardware ,device manager . IDE/ATAPI controllers ,primary channel ,advanced settings and look to see what mode its in IF its in PIO right click on the primary channel and click uninstall,reboot and let windows set it to Ultra DMA mode ,you can do the same for the secondary

A screenshot might help us understand just exactly what it is that you're seeing.

 

If DMA isn't to blame and your cables are working correctly, it must either be major fragmentation on your hdd or either of the two drives are just playing up.

 

Check your CPU usage whilst burning, if it's high, it's DMA for sure.

i used an usb dvdrw drive to burn a disc and only had the log say hard disk recovery six times.using internal dive maybe twelve times saying that.if i use a external hdd will it stop saying hard disk recovery.if i goto hdd properties tools and use error check tool will it find the fragmention on the drive and fix it.if i use it will i lose data onthe dive.
