I have a yamaha cd 2100E E-ide 16x 10x 40x cd writer. I can copy cd’s,mp3 and PSX games etc, but when it comes to cd audio I have persistant problems. I do every cd the same way, image it 1st then copy it to various blanks at only 1x. Most come out fine but say in every 10, 4 come out jumpie and skip when you play them. I have reinstalled win 98, scan disked, defragmented and got the latest firmware, but still jumping and skiping on aduio tracks occurs. I have just got Clone-CD version 3 but when I upgraded to the latest firmware Cd’s stop copying half way through and a error message is displayed, now no cd’s will copy at all on clone cd. The programs I have used are Adaptec easy cd creater, cone cd, and cdr win. Blank cd’s I have used are disk planet, and disk house. I use my cd-rom drive to image the audio disks, which is a 50x max drive. My Pc is a 500mz AmD-k62, voodoo 3000agp and 198mbof memory. I do not touch the Pc while it is copying.
Can anyone suggest a good program to copy with that works well with this yamaha writer ?
Has anyone had the same problems as me with there yamaha writer or infact another writer ?
Can anyone help me at all as I am really stuck and a wasting many cd’s, The writer cost me Â£190 and I have no recepit so I cannot take it back to the shop ?
My mate has a Â£80 writer and not one cd he has copied yet has skiped - Again help ?
