I did not try much software since. But i found that CDmate does support my writer and CloneCD as well, only thing with Clonecd is is that it’s main purpose is used to copy Discs(protected). I need a CDr program to burn audio, copy files from hardrive etc. CDmate can do this, well it’s the only CD prog i know that picks up my HP CD16ri. I got so annoyed last night coz i wanted to burn F1 manager and i know it’s protected(safedisc). Made the image with CloneCD, it strugggled reading though when it hit 83%(My writer created the image) and it took quite sometime reaching 100%(set cd read speed to X1-176KB), but i made the image eventually and when i wanted to write it it fucked my CD up. Not only once did i try but twice. Two wasted CD’s. I hope it’s just the quality of the CD’s though, i was using Memorex 16X 700MB. And CloneCD does support my writer. So i dont know what else to do.
If anyone has any help to offer please do. I think i’ll save up for a Plextor next time. It’s just names like Plextor and Lite-on are not common here in South Africa. Just names like HP, LG, Yamaha, Creative.
