-correct me if i'm wrong but using laymans terms it would seem that blindwrite forces the plextor premium to use its GIGAREC function to obtain the correct sector densities required by the secureROM protection
linear density (original disc)
shows areas on cd that have increased linear density
linear density (backup WITHOUT gigarec)
density is constant throughout cd = backup not working
linear density (backup WITH gigarec)
gigarec function forces increased linear density - backup working like original.
Of course I am assuming that is how gigarec fits 1gb onto 700mb cd......by increasing linear density more data is able to fit onto cd.:bigsmile:
