i am trying to help a friend figure out a problem with her LITEON 52/32/52 drive while writing with EAC software
her PC operating system is WINDOZE XP
the firmware revision of her drive is "QS53"
afaik EAC supports this drive for both reading and writing; i know of several people using this with EAC and even for her it DOES work, just not ALL of the time
she used the drive for awhile and as far as i know all was well, but now she
tells me that she "sometimes" gets errors when burning CDs with EAC
i do not know the exact frequency of how often the errors occur, but i
believe the problems occur sporadically on the order of less than 10% of the time (?), and are not reproducable
the write errors that she is getting are:
SEND CUE SHEET
POWER ON, RESET, OR BUS DEVICE RESET OCCURED"
also, at one point recently she also got a READ error that said...
"EXACT AUDIO COPY COULD NOT DETECT A MATCHING READ COMMAND...."
but i'm skeptical about that particular READ problem...it could have just been a corrupted disc of some kind?? i sometimes have similar problems myself with bad discs
nevertheless - does anyone have any ideas or possible things to consider?
i'm guessing a couple things so far that could be the problem:
(1) there is something physically wrong with her drive that causes it to "behave badly" sometimes
(2) this drive (or media) for some reason does not do well with hi-speed writes, maybe she should slow down to say 12x? i believe she uses taiyo-yuden 48x rated media and burns mostly in the 40x range somewhere (?)
(3) upgrading the firmware revision (QS53) of the drive may or may not help - and reading the thread on this particular drive i understand that there are complications/issues with making the upgrade, and if done incorrectly the drive can be ruined!
(4) perhaps there is something else going on wrong in her PC causing problems, a software conflict, a cable problem etc
