I’ve used Sony CD-RW 1X, 2X, 4X media for well over a year with my BenQ1640 and my old Athlon 1333.
But I just built a new system, which includes an Opteron 165 and 2 X1 Gbyte G.Skill RAM and now suddenly I can’t burn anything to the Sony’s w3ithout them failing.
I love this media, it never fails for me. Now it won’t do a thing. My conclusion is somehow the new computer is the cause. Maybe the fact that the CPU is dual-core.
Is this a “known issue”, & if so what’s the cure ?
One “odd symptom” is that prior to burning, Nero (18.104.22.168) only presents two speeds to burn “16X” & “24X” both of which are too fast for this media. Why won’t Nero allow me to select a slower speed ?
Thanks in advance,
