OK first my PC config: AMD Athlon XP +1800, 512 DDR Ram, 40GB HDD & 80 GB HDD, OS Windows XP Proffesional SP1, Sony 52x CD-ROM, Sony 48x12x42 CD-RW.
Now my problem:
Some info, when I had Sony 24x10x32 CD-RW, everything was perfect, burned CD’s in about 3.5 - 4 min. Was using Nero 5.5x.x some version & CDMate Deluxe no problem!
Then I bought Sony 48x12x42 CD-RW, then it began:confused:
First of all can’t run Roxio Easy CD Creator Platinum 5, tried all updates, including newes one 5.3.2 or something like that. Gives me an error when I start CD project, instalization error, or something like that and shuts the program down. Also tried to install thous ASPI layers didn’t help. Roxio worked before I switched to 48x12x42. Then the same problem with bouth Nero & CDMate, sometimes it writes CD’s with 48x speed (CD’s compatible with 48x wrighting speed) first of all it takes longer then it was with 24x CD-RW, about 6-10 min. second of all sometimes I can play that CD (mostly movies) sometimes it gives me error stating -Cicle redundancy error-, or shows as blan CD and I can’t open it and write no more. I throught away about 20 blanks already, it’s getting annoying:a So the best thing so far that I can do, is I’am writing at 24x speed (witch suck, becose why I bought 48x if I cant use it), and still it takes a lot longer then it took before with my 24x CR-RW, and also sometimes it writes goog sometimes no( but errors are less ocuring then when I’am burning with 48x speed), can’t open it, can’t play movies.
so I dont know if it’s problem with software or hardware ( maybe I should post this in hardware section:confused: )
P.S. Sorry about my english, it’s not my birth language!
