Does anyone know what the Superlink feature on the SH-S182D is – is it to pause the laser as part of the buffer underrun protection, in addition to the burner’s 2MB hardware buffer?
I’ve searched around and haven’t really found anything on the net. The reason I ask is b/c intially, when I installed the SH-S182D, I got horrible results for my first 6 burns: 4 of them were essentially buffer underrun errors (the first was officially a “buffer underrun” error, then, after updating to firmware SB03, the other 3 were called “invalid write state” errors but essentially were the same: 80mb Nero buffer emptying out, then the 2MB hardware buffer emptying out, then the drive halting).
I realized that part of it might be Nero, because I didn’t install the version 126.96.36.199 Nero Express that came bundled, but rather kept right on using my 188.8.131.52 non-Express Nero. The 184.108.40.206 did seem to recognize the burner properly, and did note that it had buffer underrun protection (generically – it did use the burner’s 2MB hardware buffer), but when I updated to 220.127.116.11 thru the Nero website it now had a new checkbox on the burn tab for “Superlink” which I’m pretty sure wasn’t there before.
Is this Superlink for pausing the laser mid-burn? This seems to be what was missing before, with the buffer underruns, but I’m not sure (don’t have enough cd’s to burn to test for the time being, and want to get a better idea of what’s going on, since I might RMA the unit if it’s defective).
Does anyone know? Thanks very much for any help.
