Here's a realy strange thing. I wonder if anyone has any insight into this?
Firstly the OP system: Intel P2.5 with 1Gig memory. Windows XP pro, Ser pack 2.
I have been successfully burning CD's on this system for some time without problem, (Data and music CD's).
A short while ago I added a DVD-ROM to the system and have successfully produced a number of DVD video and data disks. When I try to make a music CD on the DVD-ROM drive, I end up with a disk full of errors. I chose the DVD-ROM specificly because it will support all formats. I should add at this point, I can still produce music CD's with the CD-ROM.
One visually noticable difference between a music CD produced on the DVD-ROM as opposed a music CD produced on the CD-ROM is that the track is much darker in appearance on the DVD-ROM version. Almost as if the DVD-ROM is over cooking the disk. This is the best way I can explain this. Hope it makes sense to someone.
Finaly. I'm using "Nero"6 with all the latest updates to make disks.
No one else seems to have any ideas at the moment, I'm just wondering if try burning at a slower rate. I have had a similar problem with data CD's trying to burn them at 40X, reducing to 12 or 8X cured the problem.
Have tried the DVD burner at it's lowest speed. Same result unfortunately. No problem. I'll just have to remember to make music CD's with the CD burner and videos with the DVD burner. Thanks however for suggestion.
