How do you do “partial” burns airfix??? I have the same burner as you do and I have no problems burning all the games you mentioned without any problems and without using the hide cdr media function. GTA3 is burnable, i made a copy at 8x, works fine.

As for Aphrodavid, u produce coasters with your drive or it just doesnt read it? Some SD2 games cant be read by a CDR drive even a Plextor. try using clone cd by scanning from a regular drive and then burning using your plextor.

so what are the settings u use then?and does it work on all cd drives?

Settings? You mean for CloneCD? I use the Game profile that was provided by CloneCD. Recently I started using the profiles on the CloneCD forum. They work. Try upgrading you firmware perhaps, I think its up to 1.09 now.

Hello, :slight_smile:

Im also using 12/10/32 plextor. Is there any way other than using clonyxxl, to burn SD2?

FlyingDutchman , did you really get to work with CloneCD by itself?

Yeah, I worked with the profile that was given by CloneCD. It burnt at 4x and I was using the Imation 16x (black) CD-R’s. The second time I burnt it I did it at 8x using clonecd and it worked as well. Clonny XXL only gives you settings that it detects based on the protection. It works 99% of the time but on one occasion it didnt. The profile given by CloneCD is the safest bet. BTW, which firmware are you using? I had trouble burning with the 1.07 firmware so I upgraded to 1.09 and it worked. Try that.
