Cuesheet and DAO96(Raw) are two modes of burning Disc At Once discs.
Cuesheet mode is the classical way of burning DAO discs (the default mode).
To disable DMA mode, you have select the properties of the IDE controller your drive is connected.
Problems during Lead-In when burning audio discs might be caused by poor IDE busmaster drivers and CD-Text enabled:
Problem: IDE-CD-Writer, DMA and CD-TEXT:
Unfortunately there have been several problems with IDE-CD-Writers, if DMA mode is activated and CD Text is to be written: On some systems the system crashes when writing the Lead-in.
The reasons for this are faulty IDE Busmaster drivers. To write CD Text, an "unusual" block size (96 bytes per sector) is used. It would appear that many busmaster drivers are unable to cope with this.
We have now tried to include a few "tricks" to transfer the data to the driver in a "more digestible" fashion. Please let us know if this has improved writing CD Text. It could of course also mean that these tricks make writing CD text not work on other systems - in this case please also send us a message!
Just to clarify the situation again: This is/was not an error in Feurio! - It is an error in many IDE Busmaster drivers which were probably only tested by the manufacturer with "usual" data block sizes - and still contain errors which only occur with "unusual" block sizes.
If writing CD text with active busmaster drive operation does not work with this version either, we can only continue to advise you to deactivate busmaster operation and to urge the vendor to finally correct the driver."
Via chipsets have problems sometimes, and Feurio is sometimes able to solve them.
