my setup was working perfect but then i stated having problems. this is what i have
athlon xp 1800
3x pioneer 109 burners with latest 1.58 firmware
hdd is primary master
other 3 burners are pri slave, 2nd master and 2nd slave
i burned over 100 using this setup peferctly with maxell 4x media. i then bought some 8x ridata (retek g05). ive had nothing but problems and ive also tried some cmc coded media.
sometimes the burs will start but one of the burners will get stuck writing the lead in track, sometimes they will all burn perfect, sometimes they will fail half way through.
i thought it might be something to do with the system and it could have done with a reinstall anyway so i reinstalled windows xp with sp2 and nero 7 and the only things on there and im still getiing the same problems.
i cant really decide if its the media or the setup.
ive done a search for how to setup your pc to work as a duplicator but i cant find much info. i want to keep these 3 burners and might get a 4th if i can find out how to set it up properly.
am i ok to use the setup ive got? is there anything i need to change? ive downloaded the latest aspi layer drivers from adaptec but it doesnt seem to have made a difference. ive checked to see if dms is turned on in device manager and it is.
so what im after is how to get the stuff i got setup right, and also what sort of pata or sata card i will need to get to run 4 burners and and a sata hard drive.
thanks for any help
