I have a Plextor 16/10/40 Eide, and use Clone CD regularly with good results...i use it for both reading and burning every protection and never got a coaster :smiley: ! i'm confused, even though i alwasy read it can't copy every protection IT DOES! i haven't upgraded the firmware yet, the drive is still as i bought it.
Moreover, on day, after upgrading clone i noticed that i could set the burning speed to 20X and 24X!!! :cool:
Wassup with my burner? Am i lucky or what?
i never tried though cause i fear to damage it...
Did this happen to anyone?

Well it’s a limitation of CloneCD:

CloneCD allows you to select a faster write speed than the drive allows. This is not really a bug, it is just a cosmetic glitch. If you select 6x speed with a 2x writer, it will simply write 2x…
So sorry, you can’t write faster than 16x. I wonder if this glitch still exist in CloneCD 4 though. Never noticed it actually…
