I think I finally got the 1650 figured out. I changed it to slave on my secondary ide with the DVD ROM as master.
I made a few burns at 12x with wopc = on, Sb = on, and OS = on using taiyo yuden 1 to 8x disc’s. The quality scores run between 96 & 98 so I was pleased with the results so far.
This is my first burner with digital stereo and the Cd’s I burned with music was awesome. When I put a disc in the CD player in my car I couldn’t believe the difference compared to the Cd’s I have been playing.
