I recently got a 111D with 1.06 firmware and I made my first image burn. I used ImgBurn 1.3 set to Max with TYG02 from Rima.
About 3 / 4 in to the burn I noticed the drive come to a stop or near a stop and then seemed to spin up three times before it eventually finished the burn. Before the three spin ups the image was being burned at 8x and after it got up to 12x. The caches never appeared to have problems
This is apparently the cause of the PI spikes around 2 1 / 4 GB in to the burn
Since this burner is new to me, is there anything I could do to improve this and is what I described above [ three spin up during burn ] normal?
Also, I tried saving an image out of cddvd speed but I get an ' error saving ' dialog box so I had to take a screen grab ... how can I fix this
