I don’t know for sure if this is a n00b question, but I figured I’d post here since this is my first post to this forum. I recently purchased a NEC-3500AG burner and have been very happy with it; with one exception. I can burn just about anything with no problems, but when I try to burn audio cd’s nothing seems to work. I have used CD-R’s and CD-RW’s as data disks and for burning isos with no problems. I have burnt data and movies to DVD-R with no problem. I have tried 3 different kinds of CD-R’s to make an audio cd at different speeds and the burn fails at every speed. I am trying to burn from MP3’s on my hard drive. The cd usually gets to between 15% and 20% and then fails. I have a TDK 24x cd burner in the system and it works fine with the same media. I have tried 3 or 4 different firmwares with the same results and am currently using the 2.18SE. Any help would be appreciated!
