Just noticed this in nero concerning Lite On

…was in my nero error log…
Connected to MMC as unknown drive with class-nr : 1

Im running nero 6 6 0 16 and have a SH 16H5S…could this be why i can burn good at 4x but not at 8x? My Benq 1640 burns real good at 8x on the same medie (TYG02)
John

Sorry to be a pain…well i updated to 6 6 0 18 .burnt at 8x succesfully…but the errors are unbelievable…50 PIF in the first 2 % PIE was on a 1000!!!
