RICOH CD-ROM Recorder problems

I tried a new RICOH SCSI CD-ROM Recorder on two very well tested machines running W95 [(32Mb Pentium Pro 200 + 1Gb Seagate SCSI HDD + Buslogic SCSI Adapter) (32Mb Pentium 166 + 1Gb Seagate SCSI HDD + Buslogic SCSI Adapter)]. I used the  NERO Burning ROM software provided and fulfilled all the manufacturer recommendations. I keep getting SCSI bus reset errors during simulations and burning sessions. I managed to record three CDs and ruined seven.
Can anyone help? Thanks in advance.

check if the terminator is set properly. In a case of internal CD-Rom you must put your hard drive terminator to off and CD on. If your CD is external, you leave your hard drive on and still put on on CD. Also it is recomanded to set CD ID to 6.

If this is still not working, try another brand of SCSI adapter.

Are you getting the same error on each of the machines?

Terminators are set ok. I already tried both internal and external configurations.
I am using CD SCSI ID 4.
I get the same error on both machines. The machines configurations already performed well with an old SONY CD Rec.

Standard recommendations here are:
- get last ASPI layer drivers for Win95
- check if firmware upgrade needed for Writer
- on Usenet were rumors that 'there was bad wave of Ricohs in the
  fall 97'.

The problem lies in the fact that you are using the Ricoh and the CDROM on the same SCSI bus. Don't ask me why this should cause a problem but it does.

Trying creating a physical image on your hard drive and then using that to burn the CD.
