HOLY DISC BURNING BATMAN!!!

I just burned a disc using the disc at once feature instead of the track at once and I just successfully burned a CD with no problems at all whatsoever. And in record time!!!

I hope that is okay…

i just send a msg to dubldwn right now, num better ask for help every one…
my problem is exactly same one! and this my second recorder! it happened the same three our four months after bought my machine, so I changed it!
what i have to do, step by step, plzz…
just one note: when I run the litle .exe that comes along with .hex, it gives me “ERR:Check Available Drive was connected or not!”… I just couldn’t do the firmware update… could You folks help me?
by the way… i’m too slow about this issue, so be explicit on what U say… plz!
thks all!

Word to the wise.
It burned one disc and that was it.

I succumbed an bought a new burner.:a

well… it seem that I’ll have to follow U up… :frowning: but if it is to buy anything, then better it will be a DvD recorder! :slight_smile: only good thing in all of this is that I am going to have a DVD-R! :slight_smile:

I have this same drive and I was wondering if there is any freeware/shareware burning software out there that would WORK WITH THIS drive.
I have a couple of copies of Nero that came with some previous CD-RW drives I have bought, but I seem to recall them saying that those would only work with the drives that they came with. Can you recommend something?

Thank you,

Kirk G. :slight_smile:
