Hi there. I am a newbie and not really a tech freak. I got a few problems with the Plextor 708A (just upgraded the firmware):
when burning audio discs I can’t burn them at 2x speed anymore as I used to do when I had an HP discwriter. Is this because the CDR media is not compatible anymore with 2x speed writing or can I change the speed somewhere in the preferences of the 708A (I know I can but there’s no option for 2x speed)? I am asking cos I burn a lot of live CDs and I found it safe to burn them at 2x speed and disc-at-once to avoid small pause gaps (under 1 sec) between the tracks which can be really annoying when listening to a live CD. In the past, when I burnt a live CD with the Plextor 708A, I always got these gaps at 4x speed (with or without VariRec).
What is the absolut best CDR media for the 708A to burn audio discs and can I get these in Germany?
what software is recommended to burn audio discs? I got Nero 6.3 something but I always get these gaps. I tried Wavelab 4.0 and this one is doing better. But still…any other recommendations?
when burning a data DVD-R, it always takes up to an hour to burn 4 GB on the disc. How’s it possible that it takes so long? It says it gets burnt at maximum speed so it is supposed to burn it a hell of lot faster, isn’t it? What could be wrong?
A lot of questions, I know. But I’d be thankful if anyone could contribute. Thank you!
