CloneCD 4.0.1.10 and Plextor problem

Having problem with CloneCD and Plextor 24x drive. Have any of you guys seen this problem before? Here’s my log file:

Hmm that error is usually a result of using an incompatible writer but the Plextor PX-W2410A is definitely supported. Have you tried writing without the simulation option checked (use a CD-RW disc). And have you tried reading and writing a different image?

I am having the exact same drive, only that it is by IOMEGA (Plextor clone).

Anyway from my experience, such errors are due to:

  1. Writing speed too high
  2. Poor media
  3. Faulty drive

Therefore you might wanna try reducing the writing speed or changing the media. Sometimes it could be your power supply too… :wink:

Do not use simulate on plextor in cloneCD. It does not support RAW mode simulation.

And if you get the same error when doing the actual write, it’s a DMA issue

It should work:

Version 4.0.1.3: 2002 05 23

[ul][li]Better setting of read speed for non-MMC-compliant drives
[/li][li]Improved Audio extraction speed with several drives
[/li][li]License Agreement is now able to accept empty lines from Locale Editor
[/li][li]Log Window is now faster and can hold more entries
[/li][li]Progress Window shows estimated remaining times greater than 2 hours as “Unknown”
[/li][li]AWS could accidently become enabled in Japan/USA
[/li][li]AWS state will be shown in Japan/USA (should always be off)
[/li][li]All default profiles tweaked for better performance
[/li][li]Support for new writers added
[/li][li]Allow RAW-DAO write simulation with newer Plextor drives
[/li][li]Allow RAW-SAO with newer ACER/BENQ and ACCESSTEC/OPTORITE drives
[/li][li]Open and Close Target is now Thread-Safe
[/li][*]Added API for SafeList handling[/ul]

Hi netsniper,

the “RAW Mode Simulation” of CloneCD is not supprted by the Plextor 2410A drive.
It is supported by the Plex Combo, the 40x and 48x drive.

Please disable the Simulation in the device settings (right mouse click on the Plex) and everything will work fine.

Oops I feel so stupid now :o I thought the 24X was also considered a ‘newer Plextor drive’… Thanks for clearing that up sheepfriend!
