Something very strange here… My burns seem to have lots of C1s and some C2s after a particular point. There’s the normal Liteon hi-speed noise then at about 70-95% in Nero with a 702mb image the drive will flash orange once and drop to a lower speed of 24+ to complete the burn.
Even a 40X burn gives errors. Funny thing is that after the slowdown there’s no errors right to the end of the CDR. Only error free burn was at 24X
Tried with EZCD, 6S0C, D and F firmware, uninstalled intel App accelerator, disabled smartburn, all to no avail
Used TY 52X and TDK (Ritek) 48X media.
Liteon 52246S 6S0F on Secondary Master, DMA is enabled
Am going out of my mind now, used up 10 CDRs just to test the various configurations ! Is the problem the drive (<1mth old) or media ?
