Nope, there doesn't seem to be a way to avoid the crash. It's not the end of the world though, when the 'ODC has stopped responding' box pops up, you can still see the graph up until that point behind it... it's just washed out like mine is above.
My 'Aone Plus+ Gold Edition 8x DVD+R DL [RICOHJPN-D01-67]' burns/scans were far from good. Having done 3 at each supported speed, I had 1 fail to burn at 4x, 2 at 6x and 2 at 8x - but all 3 were awful when scanned.
I don't know which discs they were using when they created the RICOHJPN-D01-67 write strategies, but they either very different to mine or they just did a really bad job on it!
I'm hoping there's a way to get 2.4x enabled for RICOHJPN-D01-67 and MKM-003-00, and 4x enabled for MKM-001-00. Maybe that's something Liggy could do?
MCSE doesn't support the 1.Z7 or 1.Z8 firmwares, plus I don't really want to swap or substitute the strategies, I just want to add to what's there.
