Hey all, happy new year!
I somehow felt i should post my last annoying experience when burning a cd-r…
Actually i tend to use slow burning speed settings (8 x audio, 16 x - 32 x for
simple data disks and slowest possible on linux .iso files)
But a few days i was in a hurry but had to write ~ 900 + something MB onto
two cd-r (media: plextor 48-x multispeed, burner GSA-4176b).
I burned the first with no problem, when i expected the second to be done Nero
showed up a message “burning process failed…”
I opened the tray and was horrified by holding a disc with a crack in it (be-
ginning in the centre and ending in the middle of the surface.
Good luck i had, the cd-r did not split totally and f-up my device. I never
believed the GSA-4176b would spin so fast, so i am not going to use 48 x
on this drive again.
