yes, my burner is old. it's a 40125s. latest firmware. dma enabled.
and i've found that i cannot burn mode2 over 20x speed.
when i try to burn vcd/svcd's, which are mode2, at 24x, i get nasty burn rings on the disc, and the disc ends up being unreadable.
burning at 40x is even worse, with Nero ScanDisc indicating that the disc is damaged.
mode1 burns usually aren't a problem.
is there an explanation for this?
I hate wasting blanks due to mode2 f*ck ups.
