konstance that's the correct programme.
The way I see it is if my media isn't good enough, then it should definitely not be taking it up to 40x, as the Verbatim's did. PowerREC II obviously doesn't work as it should. I repeated these tests with TDK 16x (Always do 24x in my TDK burner with no errors.)
I also repeated these tests with 24x Acer CDs. Now, I didn't even bother with 40x. I just burned using the Plextor at 24x. Each time, errors galore. I find it hard to believe that the Plextor is THAT fussy. I've never ever had a problem with my TDK burner, and immediately I can see there's a problem with the Plextor.
As I said, burning at 16x with the Plextor resulted in 0 errors. Burning at anything above, using 24x cds, resulted in a lot of errors. Forget 40x. I'd like to see 24x with no errors. :(
And considering my 24x burner is only 12 seconds slower than the Plextor when writing a 76minute cd, the Plextor has gone back. The Plextor takes ridiculously long to actually start burning, compared to the TDK.
