Ok, I’ve got a weird scenario here, and I dont really know how to go about troubleshooting it, looking for some input.
I have an 851 that I’ve upgraded to the CG firmware. Both before and after the upgrade, I’ve had issues burning audio CDs on this burner. I’ve tried several different burning programs, and this problem has followed me through a complete OS fresh install, so I’m thinking it’s something particular to this drive perhaps.
According to the burning software, the burn is successful. When playing the CD in a standalone player, track 1 plays fine, track 2 plays fine, then all other tracks on the CD play, but the display still indicates that it’s on track 2. On my Bose WaveRadio, for example, attempting to change to a track >2 results in a disc error. Towards the end of the CD, it gets very choppy, and sometimes skippy.
Other types of CDs appear to be fine; they burn/read without issue. Same for s/vcd movies. No issues - I use my pc as a video capture for TV on occasion to capture TV programs to s/VCD compatible MPGs. They burn and play without issue.
The drive is probably still under warranty by a hair, but I really dont want to have to RMA it, as I’d be without a dvd burner. I’ve taken to burning audio discs on an older Iomega (Plextor) cd burner.
Any suggestions about what I could do to try to troubleshoot this? Has anyone heard of this type of problem?
Thanks in advance-
