EXtra info: I have my 2500A in a USB 2.0 Ext box, and have updated using the Windows flasher. I'm not sure if updating FW thru the USB is a good idea or not ? I've also tried burning discs @ 2.4x, 4x, and 6x. Haven't done to many 8x, cause i'm more concerned with quality. I've also used -R's ProdiscS03, and MCC., and the error count is marginal.,; but i've still been seeing high error spikes at the end of discs., sometimes on the -R's higher errors in the beginning. How can i keep this from happening ? Could it be the media at the end of the discs ? But i'm also using 3 different brands of Ricohjpn.
