Just flashed my 32123s to 40125s and, after reading Kenny C’s sticky, decided to format a disc using Mt. Rainier. Kenny’s screenshots show it as “Logically formatting…”, whereas mine said it was formatting as UDF file format. Why is mine different?
He quoted 30 secs. for formatting, mine took 2 mins. Are we talking about the same process here?
Also, when I insert a formatted disc, the red led stays on as long as the disc is in the drive. Is this normal? If it is, does this mean the laser is activated all the time?
A 700mb. disc had 539mb. left after formatting, much the same as using InCD. I assume, therefore, that they use the same formatting process.
While Nero does indeed let me use it as a dirty great floppy, doesn’t InCD effectively do the same thing, or am I missing something here?
This Mt. Rainier stuff is all new to me, and I’m trying to figure out if it’s actually got any practical use.
(Kenny’s tutorial was a big help, btw).
