I just made a bunch of coasters using this drive with the write speed set to MAX using CloneCD 4 beta 19. I used the settings from ClonyXXL. I was able to make a disc that windows could recognize as a real CD with my write speed set to 16X. The good thing is the backup works in other CD drives and I didn't need to use AWS. My question is why do I have to write with such a slow speed? I am guessing it may have to do with the media. I am using the black CD-Rs from Memorex. I as also using the latest posted firmware from liteonit's website- ZOA.
I hope that this is an isolated case with Max Payne and not the norm with SDv2.51
