I just tried to burn a couple of CD-Rs with my Plextor 708A (update: I have still fw 1.04) and the latest Plextools 2.11. These are actually the first CD-Rs burnt with that drive, since I also have a Premium and so I use the 708A only for DVDs.
I am experiencing a strange thing: burning a .PXI file at 16x, I see some oscillations of the internal 2MB (Alas!) buffer during the track change, but buffer level bar never goes down below at least 60%, and the led always remains in “green” state.
At the end of the (successful) burn, I get 256 occurrences of “BP rec activity (BP counter)”. This is the counter of Buffer Underruns, or am I wrong? It does not happen if I use the Premium. My system is quite clean and stable, I have no difficulties burning even at 40x with my Premium and my Lite-on 851, or burning DVDs even at 8x with my 708A.
Any hint or opinion? Thanks in advance, and Happy Easter to everyone.
