Here’s one to look out for:
I have some older (2+ years) blank CD media rated at 16X. Under Plextools and Roxio, it automatically burns at its rated speed, 16X. Nero Ultra Edition, however, tries to burn it at 48X on my PX-716A–and the drive allows it! Of course, the result is a bona-fide coaster, failing after about 2 seconds of burning, but is this result the fault of the drive, Nero, or perhaps both…
For the record, the same discs burn properly with my Benq 1620A and Nero. Only the combo of Nero+PX-716 exhibits this behavior. Of course I can manually burn slower, but if I forget, it’s coaster time.
Anyone else out there seen this sort of behavior?
(fw 1.03, 1.04 and 1.04u all do this)
