Well the rom is lite-on 486s (as it came from dell)
cd burner is nec 9100A.
I get bad results no matter if I burn from the rom to the burner, make an image file with the rom and burn, or if I make the image file from the burner to the harddisc, then burn. I once showed c-2 errors of over 1 million. If I slow read speed to 20x and burn at 4x, I get the best results, but NEVER ONCE has it passed the "verify data" test with an audio cd. when I created the "test cd"
first I got a message that it didn't appear that the burner was capable of burning the test disc, or something like that, and asked if I wanted to proceed anyway. I clicked yes and something burned, but it tests pathetically bad. c1, c2, and sync errors. I have sent something and attached a log file to nero, but I'm not holding out much hope, so far they suggested things already covered in my email, hopefully it was just a form letter sent before they address the actual issue, which they stated they would do "shortly". Seems like nice software, but I'm about to ditch it if this doesn't sort out. For whatever reason, since I ran the test disc, when I perform disc quality tests, the ci and c2 check boxes grey out and show no errors, quality 100% but still won't pass the "verify data' test I'm about to decide the burner is bad, but the rom is no better. Unlikely they both shot craps at the same time, I suspect this nero as the problem. Does your verify data test fail or pass?
