are there still guys having the same problem that a copy of Travelpilot E CD/ Teleatlas E CD is not working? I couldn’t find something how to make a copy of type E CDs so i collected as much as information as possible.
I have a Blaupunkt Travelpilot EX for Ford. I don’t think that the drive recognizes that the CD is a CD-R and not a CD-ROM. I cannot believe that Blaupunkt used a cd-drive which is able to read the ATIP like a cd-burner. I assume that the navi detect the copy by a DPM (Data Position Measurement). I don’t know how it works exactly but when i remember properly the drive make a lot of noise when it detects the “copy” and nothing happens. So it seems that the drive is measuring the transferrate at a fixed drive rpm or seeks between data position on the cd and measures the time.
After that speculation i made a drive speed measurement (Nero CD-DVD Speed) with my cd-burner and dvd-rom drive with the original CD and a copy of it. Both drives are of type CAV which means that the drive read with a constant rotation speed of the disc. The analysis of the measurements showed that the original CD provide a higher transferrate in comparision to the copy. The only logical explanation is that the orignal disk has a higher density which means that the pits and lands are shorter than the normal standard.
I have only a LiteOn burner but if there is someone who has a Plextor burner with GigaRec function please try to make a copy with higher density and try if you get a working copy.
