I have formated my C: and installed a fresh copy of Winxp pro with SP1.
First thing after that was to install the new via 4in1 drivers ver. 4.5. After that I tried BW 22.214.171.124 using the ASUS CRW-5224A with firmware ver. 1.37.
Reading MaxPane2 with the ASUS CRW-5224A fails almost immediatley once it is time to the topology extraction. Yes it starts and then fails approx 1-2 seconds later.
This is one a clean system with no other software installed.
Lost for idea’s after reading alot of info on Cdfreaks, I tried out Alcohol 120 1.4.7.(Trial Version). Reading and writing with the ASUS CRW-5224A has produced a backup that works.
So I installed BW 4.5.7. Reading the disk was fine, but the BWA file it created had a few spikes. So instead of creating the BWA with the BWA builder I converted the MDS from Alcohol 120. Buring this image read by BW4 and the BWA created by Alcohol 120 with the ASUS CRW-5224A also works.
So I have tried Bw5 again, and it fails when it is time to the topology extraction.
I Do not have Nero Installed. I do not have any Roxio products installed. I do not have any antivirus software installed.
What i do have installed and running is ZoneAlarm pro 4.5.
But since BW 5 failed to extract the topology when absolutly no other software was installed I do believe that there is some glich with BW5 and my system.
I have a Soltek DRV75-2 Motherborad,a PIONEER DVD-ROM DVD-116 (SM), an ASUS CRW-5224A (SS), Seagate 20GB (PM), and an Seagate 80GB (PS).
