hmm, I used to own a Yammie 8424 drive, which I used with no quarms, it was a very good drive. No CloneCD support! hmm CloneCD said it didnt support simulated writing, well bolluxs to that, yammie has always had this support, Nero uses it! And just for the record, I manged to read all the FF8 cds for the PC, and my mate with a IDE PleXtor couldnt!! Just for the record, not writer accept for the yammie can good overlength CD's I have now bought a PleXtor 12 write, and tried to make backups of the yammie overlenth disk, not a chance in hell. I still think the auther of CDclone cant be assed with the yammie, a damm shame as blind write can use the yammie no probs. So yammie crew stick with it, you have a good drive, I should know, I used to own a x4x3x6, never had a single prob, the same for the x8x4x24. So mr author of CDclone why dont you have a chat with the Blindwrite crew, and ask how them managed the impossible eh!!!
