I used CDRWin 4.0a with an older TEAC CDR56S600, and could overburn up to 704MB on Kodak 700MB SilverGold with no probs., in Windows 2000 SP2, Adaptec ASPI latest 4.60.1021.
I updated with a PleWriter 24/10/40A firmware 1.02, no bus-master drivers installed.
It works perfect, but just a strange thing: trying 703 or 704MB on a Kodak 700MB, it starts, burns, after 99% it shows :
Error: 'WRITE command failed on device 2:0:0
Illegal command request (04h 00h 02h 05h 24h 00h).
But,...the burned cd is perfect, checked binary with WinHex.
But checking with CDRVerifier - latest, or CDR Diagnostic - latest, it shows No Data Track and can not read the CD.
In Windows Explorer or accessing in Windows the CD is ok.Everything is ok burned.
I have licenced CDRWin, so it's no hidden tricks from CDRWin.
Now, doing a CD of exactly max 700MB, it's ok on Plextor and CDRWin 4.0a!
Doing the same burning on TEAC, works perfect.
So...how can I enable in CDRWin 4.0a the overburn?
For TEAC it seems to be default and works. But for Plextor?
I backuped more folders with various bin-cues inside as few other folders with various stuff. In CDRWin I use these settings:
-Build and Record an ISO 9660 image file
-Include Hidden Files
-Long File names (Joliet)
-Include System Files
-Finalize Close Session
-Verify Recorded Image
-TrackMode MODE 2
With my TEAC it always worked up to 704MB.
But with the new Plextor, only up to 700MB, trying 704,703, I got the problem described above.
I'm almost sure that it has to do with overburn, because Plextor officially say it does NOT support, and PlexTools recognize the Kodak CD (ATIP reading) up to 702MB!
I guess it will accept only up to 702MB!
Thanks in advance for answering!
