Thanks for coming back on this one.
Yes I have been burning at max speed - supposed to be 48x but it never gets anywhere near that.
Still not sure about flashing the firmware. As far as the workings of PCs goes I'm a complete novice. And I've read a few horror stories of people completing destroying their drives (particularly with this the drive I have). The new media shouldn't be an issue though as I have successfully burned and played in the Technics player using the Imation 52x cd-r, though I am now experiencing problems with this media. I have also had success with JVC cd-r as well. The confusing thing is....I have manged one burn/play success with the Memorex cd-r
Any idea what the digital/analogue difference in Feurio suggests?
The problem seems to coincide with me getting a bit more adventerous and trying to burn MP3 and OGG files to disc for playing on the Technics CD player. I didn't have too much trouble with the MP3s as Feurio converts these automatically. I've even had success with some files that were sampled at the wrong frequency for the cd player, Feurio made the necessary adjustments and all was well. However, Feurio does not convert the OGG files so I downloaded a shareware converter.
I have manged to convert, burn and play OGG files after some teething problems originally (i.e. poor sound quallity on the first track). But now I'm struggling (back to poor quality first track or not playing at all!).
Since then I've also had problems copying a factory pressed cd. I have used both Feurio and Easy CD Creator. Some discs will play in the pc but not the cd player, whilst others won't play in either. It's a double disc set that I'm trying to burn. The first has burned and plays no problem (on the Memorex 52x!!) but the second disc is the one causing the problems. The second disc runs to 76+ minutes, could this be an issue? Though I have over-burned successfully before.
Any further advice much appreciated.
