Hi, G@M3FR3@K. I think that is important that there is some clarity about "buffer underruns".
Before the introduction of buffer underrun prevention technology, a "buffer underrun" always meant an error that would abort the recording and create a coaster. This definition has not changed, but some are now using "buffer underrun" to mean the condition when the buffer empties and buffer underrun prevention is used to continue the recording. This later usage of "buffer underrun" makes no sense logically because it is not prevented by "buffer underrun prevention". BURN-Proof does prevent buffer underruns when the correct definition is used. BURN-Proof does not prevent the buffer from emptying during a burn, but that is not a buffer underrun when the buffer underrun prevention technology allows the burn to resume without error.
This is the first sentence of the definition from Plextor's "The Process of Writing" (italics mine):
One of the biggest problems in recording CD's is when media becomes unusable during recording, due to something referred to as a "buffer underrun".
DocBoard, is there a specific reason that you are burning in DAO/96, or could you be buring in standard DAO just as well? If BURN-Proof is already enabled, it would be interesting to see if the error is only happening in DAO/96. What is the error message in the Nero log?
What Plextor firmware version are you using, v1.10? What method did you use to flash the Plextor firmware to the Creative drive?
