I recently purchased one of these drives. I have been using it for the last three weeks and have been unable to get it to write at 1x.
I can write in 2x and 4x without any problems. However to get better audio quality I would like to be able to write in 1x but I can't.
The problem is that it will start to write in 1x and then it will stop. The software I am using to create the cd will crash and the cd will stop writing.
I have tried different cd copy software - Nero, Easy CD and NTI-CD Copy.
I have done all the usual things such as disable screen savers virus software ect. I have also run disk defrag and scandisk.
After doing all this it still does it. I have tried many times and on two different machines each giving the same result.
Anyone know what's going on here? Is it a hardware fault?
