Could I please add something to that?

Is there any chance that track-at-once before the disc was finalized will cause read errors?

disc at once is better.

track at once will switch the laser on & off after each track.

I do not think there is an issue of one being better than the other. For regular data, one can use both write methods with the same efficacy, no difference to the final product. One needs to to use dao though when he wants to overburn a disk or copy data in raw, like 1:1 copies of games. This has been discussed before, where, if memory serves me right, the gurus of the technical forum reached the same conclusion.

o770 to answer your question, is see no reason why tao would cause errors where dao wouldnt in the first place. using bad media or a cdr of bad quality should result in errors being made no matter whether you use tao or dao.

Well, if you burn TAO and scan the disc afterwards, you'll see that ugly red block in CD Speed, but that's all

You mean the the very last block right? Doesnt mean anything though, other proggies shouldnt report a bad sector there i think.

Use DAO unless you have to use TAO (multisession).
TAO has no advantage.

For audio, only DAO should be used:

And DAO is quicker since it writes without any pauses. I only use DAO.

@Hemi: It is correct to report this error, because it really is there

I never get a red block on any burned CD using NERO and the CDSpeed scandisk - burnt over 1500 cd's now. I did initially after an upgrade of nero but removing it (+reg entries) and a fresh install worked a treat.

Is it there because the sessions stays open (not finalised) or is it due to the write method? (aka tao)

I never get the gred block now that I totally got rid of Nero and re-installed (reg cleaned) - this was with finalised DAO cdr's.

It is some strange bug that is cleared on many systems by doing the above - it worked with my 241040a at home and 5.5.8.0 and at work with a newer plextor that gave the end red block.

@Hemi: It's just the write method.
