Bought a Plextor 24/10/40a a month back but only just got round to using it (I know, but my old system was too old). I upgraded the firmware from 1.02 to 1.03 (it is TLA 0202).
I have had no end of problems trying to burn an S-VCD image to cd/rw. Nero, CDRDAO or a new SVCD compile made using VCDEasy all seem to burn o.k but the resultant disc is either unreadable or just shows as an audio disc with a few very small audio tracks (a few k each).
In frustration, I decided to burn just the main mpeg track to the cd/rw (650 MB file, 80min Princo cd/rw showing 703MB free - it had been erased) as a normal data cd. The burn went o.k with no reported errors - however, the burnt disc still shows as an audio cd with a few tracks!!!
I am now going to try normal files on other media (the cd/rw that came with the drive). Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong - this is driving me mad. I thought princo cd/rw’s would work, but not always turn out as some kind of unreadable audio disc.
