I’ve been using GigaRec on a few of my discs to try and make it easier for some of the cruddier readers I come across in my line of work to read them.
I recently went to copy one today, but I noticed two things:
a) I couldn’t read the disc at anything faster than 8x in the 716! My Pioneer slot-loader was able to read the disc at 48x however!
b) I couldn’t actually copy the disc in PlexTools Pro (V 2.28)!
On inserting the disc into the drive and going to the CD/DVD copy, I could select the drive okay, but then the Start button would grey out, preventing me from executing the copy op!
In the CD/DVD info, Type and Label were blank, but everything else was okay.
I tried setting the destination drive to be the 716A, and then an Image file, but both yielded the same result - Greyed out Start button.
I ended up using WinImage to create an ISO (Only other app I had handy was Nero and it can’t make ISOs?!?!?) and then using PlexTools to burn that ISO!
Can any of you test this out? The disc was a pretty sparse one, so it’s very likely I used 0.6x GigaRec to create it originally.
Affirmative or negative reports welcome; Please let me know so I can try and figure whether this is my drive, my system or PlexTools!
