Burning & scratching

#1

hello folks

i've been having problems and this forum came highly recommended.

i have a plextor 12/10/32A and i'm using nero.
about a month ago i slowed down the write speed to 8x
cuz i was gettin some scratchy noises on early tracks.
then i slowed down to 4x cuz i was getting scratchy noises throughout.
now even on 1X i can't get cds to burn. whether mp3s
or cd-to-cd. please help:(

the only thing I can think of is you’re not using 12x certified media, because with one brand of CD-R’s I had the same problems (and also buffer underruns). these media were not certified for the speed I was trying to burn them with.

Does it really matter 12X certified media? :confused: Apparently he(she) tried in slower mode (X1, X4, X8) so it should do something at least…

i checked the cds and they say “24x compatible”.

i’m using adifferent brand cd from before
so maybe i’ll try the old ones to rule out that problem.

any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

thanx

I doubt the media brand matters
try updating to the latest nero
