okay with nero and verbatim 32x the leadout finishes without problems under 20% of the time. i bumped it to 24x and that works 90% of the time and 20x works 100% of the time. buring can be data, VCD,SVCD,bin/cue. does not matter. i take the same bin/cue and use clonecd and it write the leadout 32x everytime! same with CDRwin but sometimes cdrwin just looses the buffer for no reason and slows down( i think i need to up the buffer size) . and nero cd speed shows that cdrwin first block has damaged part sometimes but the svcd play fine and the data reads fine in windows. for clonecd i use daemon tools to load then cdcopy on the fly. also tried with nero and i get the same bad error. seems the first burn always finishes correctly and then 24x works for a while then i have to goto 20x and that always works.
ive updated the drive to zs0g
ive uninstalled nero and reinstalled.
14gb drive is primary master 20gb drive is primary slave
liteon is secondary master seagate 80gb is secondary slave
first had it on a promise ultra 33 card. but that was not working either the card failed or dma was not getting enabled.
now here is the kicker.
me and a friend both ordered the same drive. same order. both upgraded the firmware. i used my verbatim 32x on his burner and it burns fine.
me figure out how to get nero to quit being a A$$. i would like to burn atleast data and SVCD and vcd with it.
or whats the correct buffer settings for this drive with CDRWIN for the bin/cue. is there anything else that i can use to burn data and svcd so easily!
