I Have a 2.1 Athlon on a Abit KG7R mobo 1 gig of RAM, I also have a Longshine Raid card. This allows upto 12 IDE devices to be connected. In the past I had a couple of Plextors on this mobo and I could burn in tandem no problem. I then had a couple of 24x Liteons and could never achieve multiple burning. I now have 2 x LTR 401 25W and a LXR 40122. Again no matter what combination I use I can not burn on any 2 drives at 1 time.
I have moved every device and tried every conceivable combination taking some out putting some in taking out the raid card etc etc. Please believe me when I say I have exhausted every avenue.
I have also tried all the firmwares as and when they become available. I have never managed to achieve a multiple burn.
What happens is both burn O.K buffers are nice and full and everything looks sweet. Then one will finish the burn at the correct point whilst the other burns to the edge of the CD-R before crashing my PC. When I take out the discs it/they work O.K but I have to restart my PC before I can continue.
I have formatted and reinstalled so many times so that my burning apps have virgin installations but it’s the same every time. I’ve tried every version of Nero and Every Version of Disc Juggler that supports my Liteons. As I say i previously had it working with Plextors so why the beef with Liteon?
Does anyone elso use multiple Liteons to burn?
Thanks for looking in
