Write speed bug with clone beta 21

#1

A friend of mine has the clone b21 he has a toshiba sd-m1612 and a plextor 40x when he is tring to write a cd 32x he only writes 16x why

p.s all speeds are to maximun

The Plextor is picky when it comes to writing at high speeds. Make sure you use CD-R’s discs that are certified for 40x writing. You can check www.plextor.be for a list of recommended media. When you use discs that are certified for a lower write speed the Plextor will stick to what it ‘thinks’ is the best speed and it can thus stick to 16x. I don’t think this is a CloneCD problem although it couldn’t hurt upgrading to the latest beta 30 (www.elby.org).

Your writer will only let you write as fast as the media + OPC allows. No point writing at 24x on a 16x disc if it won’t work :wink:


#4

yes but he is tring to write 40x on a 32x cdr.
Then why he writes only 16x the cd is 32x


#5

It means nothing that the disc is 32x certified. The Plextor will use what it ‘thinks’ is the best speed to write the disc and will ignore the certified speed. I had the same problem with some 32x media and my Mitsumi CR-480ATE (32x writer). It would also write only at 16x to this media. When I changed it to a more expensive brand these discs could be written at full speed.

As seen in a different thread, this is no CloneCD bug. Looks like Plextor drives don’t write with full speed in DAO-RAW mode.
