Well it seems this cryptic error has finally hit me when using CDSpeed.
I wanted to check write transfer tests after upgrading my Lite-ON’s firmware. Hadn’t tried in quite a while, actually.
Using the CDSpeed Transfer test really weird things happen: First of all, the blank is seen as only having 2:17 minutes of capacity. (regardless of the brand and size). When I run the transfer test, it goes OK all the way to about 56 minutes then the graph stops. The burner, however, seems to be continuing its test all the way to the end. In any case, I get the “NO ADDITIONAL…” error!? I do not have any problems reading burnt disks. It only happens with blanks.
I have tried all kinds of combinations of: ASPI layers (1017, 1021); CDSpeed versions (some minor differences but end result is the same). I tried to burn a CD with Nero after that, and nothing happened. I also downgraded my firmware back to what is was before, to no avail. I have lowered my bus speed in the BIOS, no change. Maybe I should underclock my processor?!
I then disabled AIN and still same problem. I have tried different registry files, have loaded and unloaded different ghost images from the last month. I have not yet tried to install a basic image though. My son wants to get back to his game… Anyway, I’m puzzled. And yes, I’ve made a search, been doing that since yesterday (here and on Google).
I have not yet tried uninstalling Nero / CD Speed to see whether that would solve the problem. Also, I have not yet tried to install the burner on the primary IDE as slave in case something was wrong with the IDE channel. I figure if it was so, I would not have been able to clone a couple of disks I’ve cloned successfully. I am under the impression the problem is SCSI or ASPI related and is software based since I can make Clone copies without any problem.
Iâ€™m running Win98SE with the Lite-ON 40125S on Sec IDE Master. a Plextor 1210A as Secondary Slave. (I get the same problems with the Plextor BTW). My software is CloneCD, Nero, and I also have FantomCD for my son’s games images.
So you see, I’m kind of lost. Any help would be appreciated!
