well at least for me…
in the US the version 0002 (which just means it comes with firmware 1.02) comes with plextools pro. well my problem wasnt the settings of Alc 120 it was plextools pro running…beleive it or not as soon as i exited the program and tried the same disk again on a different drive it worked flawlessly with no emu except for hide cdr (or autoplay for blindwrite folks). I was getting the .tmp errors in the other drives with plextools pro running.
this is a backup of Medal of Honor Breakthrough which uses the latest version of SD2.9
I am going to upgrade the firmware back up to 1.04 and make sure it still works.
Im thinking those of you that are having problems with this drive and safedisk 2.9 this may be your problem too…try exiting plextools pro before running the cd on other drives. maybe the folks overseas with the older revisions 0000 are not having problems because they arnt using the plextools pro…i highly doubt its a hardware issue…this drive is a 2 sheep burner.
