IMO, this behaviour in burning has nothing to do with "aspi". ItÂ´s the difference in burning "engines" and low level access layer that matters...
[Sure, a messed up "aspi" layer can make things worse...]
Nero is one of the few burning programs still depending on a "aspi" layer.
Have you ever done any tests with RecordNow Max or Blindwrite. Try it, and you might have a pleasant surprise.
BTW, I have been using CloneDVD since first released.
