I have a Lite-on 12x10x32 CDRW (sold by Hi-Val, but checked it is a regular lite-on) also a 52x CDrom drive.
I have used ECD 5.0 plat, Nero, Clone CD, and Win XP Pros own burning software. My problem is that I don’t seem to be able to copy CD’s very well no matter which CD software I use. My friend has a Lite-on 24X writer and Oem CDrom and burns almost any CD he want’s. We were using the exact same CDR/CDRW disks.
I can copy music and make data cds no problem.
Example: Burning a copy of Diablo 2 for a back up disk I can’t, but he can. In fact he can even burn EA games now. I have not been able to do but only one program CD that was over 2 years old using clone CD.
My questions are:
Is there a difference in the CDRW’s that would cause some to burn successfuly more than others?
How about the CDrom’s capability, is that an issue? It’s a 52 times reader but it is about 3-4 years old.
He suggested in getting a DVDrom drive (even tho I don’t watch DVD’s on my computer) because the DVDrom drives are more powerfully lazered, is this true?
