Too bad you returned the drive. The last update for the Prassi engine was 01 August. I’ll bet the next update is only a week or two away and I’ll bet the LTR48125W is in that update. Like the man said, you just get the update from the Veritas site.
I have Sony CDExtreme also. It is a crippled version of Prassi software. CDExtreme came with my 10X Sony SCSI burner.
I also have Prassi PrimoDVD. It is like CDExtreme, but, with a few features added.
I just purchased the LTR48125W and, like you, I am anxiously awaiting the Veritas release of the Prassi Engine update.
At the moment, I can write to the LTR48125W using Prassi PrimoDVD (or CDExtreme), but, during the disk verification process, it is reported as a failed disk. So, I’m using Nero BurningROM and VOB Instant CD-DVD with the LTR48125W for the time being. It just so happens those two other software packages already recognize the LTR48125W.
I agree with you. The Prassi software is top notch. It will handle file names of 212 characters and Windows seems to have absolutely no trouble reading those long file names when burned to a CD.
I also like the way Prassi side-steps all ASPI problems by using its own neat little engine. Prassi doesn’t conflict with any other software on my computer. It just does its job and does it well.
Prassi PrimoDVD will burn to multiple recorders. I used it to burn to a Yamaha 4X and a Sony 10X at the same time. Obviously those are different drives with different firmware. But, Prassi worked them simultaneously without any problems.
So, I am really looking forward to the Veritas release of the Prassi engine update to see if Prassi can write to the LTR48125W in conjunction with my Sony 10X at the same time. That will be quite amazing. I’ll be able to spit out 2 CD copies every 3 to 6 minutes.
(Just for fun info: I think that … InCAT was purchased by Prassi and Prassi renamed it to EasyCD. Then, Prassi sold EasyCD to Adaptec and Adaptec renamed it to EasyCD Creator. Then, Prassi went off to write another CD burning package. Now, Prassi has sold that other CD burning package to Veritas.)
I hope Veritas maintains the Prassi engine in good fashion. I also hope the Prassi people are working on something else exciting for us!!
