I am having major problems burning CDs with my new 108. When I try to burn a disc-at-once cd via Nero the project is not finalized correctly, resulting in a disc that doesnt play correctly in some players (for example, my honda accord). When I burn the same disc in Roxio, the resulting CD seems to work fine but it only burns at ~8x instead of the selected 32x. I have also noticed that 32x burns in Nero take about twice as long on the 108 than they do with my Lite-On CDR (same computer). I have tried 3 different brands of media (Memorex, Imation, Princo)
I have tried updating the firmware to 1.18, replacing the IDE cable (80pin of course), removing the other CDR drive, etc. None of this seems to improve the situation. Right now the drive is on the primary IDE controller as Master (my hds are sata). Any ideas what else I should try before I give up and order the NEC 3500? I was running the Pioneer 105 before this “upgrade” and never had any problems from it.
