Please be patient and thanks in advance for reading this lengthy post. I have a number of questions on how to use this software, and a couple of problems I would be grateful for help on.
READING THE DISC
How do you set the speed of extraction in BWA Builder 5? It appears to default to max speed; BWA files are of low quality. I used BW5 Tweaker, start page set to read, and adjust the extraction speed that way. Is this correct? There are two places to set the extraction speed, I assume on the Basic setting tab, the adaptive tab is for the image extraction, and the topology tab is to set the topology extraction speed? It produces two files. No 1 is 11kb and named Warcraft 111. 2nd named Warcraft 111 B5I, and is full image size. I then launched BWA Builder 5 and load the 11kb file. The graph it displayed looks very smooth and status display rates it at 100%. I then wanted to learn the use of the BWA Edit tool version 1.00. It will not open either of the two files I have so far. I went back to BWA 5 Builder, loaded the graph and saved it into BWA file format. This produces a file of zero kb!!. And nothing happens when I try to open it in BWA Edit tool. What have I missed or done wrong here.
WRITING THE DISC
I now open BW5 Tweaker, start page set to write. I assume I donâ€™t need AutoPlay and have a Plextor Premium. I uncheck include AutoPlay info? and set the write speed down from maximum? And leave read error and subcodes on automatic. Or are these Protection system dependant.?. On the Topology tab I select â€œwrite with premiumâ€. I assume that if I had a BWA file I would now select the location of the file from the browse button? As my BWA file is empty I left that blank, ### Are there any tutorials on how you use the advanced settings tab at this point.## Click on Run Blindwrite.
Ok now on Blindwrite main screen select file to burn and burner location, and hit write. Fails straight away. â€œTopology to be reproduced with premium but writing device is not premiumâ€. The log shows my premium listed as the writing device, and BWT 5 file contains topology data at 100% quality.
The only way to get a write is to leave the topology tab set to automatic.
