Just for awareness sake:

In all the time I have been burning DVD's with Nero 5.5 and now Nero 6...I have NEVER had coasters...and now three in a row with my Plextor PX-708A. I am in the process of working on more DVD burning and if it persists...back to 6.0.0.23. I will update in a bit.

Nero sucks!

They must have the same software engineers that write Optorite firmware.
:lol: :D :)

Ehhhh, no we don't have firmware engineers in our ranks. Not as far as I know. ;)

OK...

A total of 7 DVD burns:

Brand: TY

1-18% (6X)
19-90% (8X)
91-100% (4X) Total burn time 9:00 Success

TDK Ricoh

First three burns...would not close...coasters -actually the first three burns using 6.00.28

Burn 4:

1-18% (6X)
19-80% (8X)
81-100% (4X)...Total burn 9:20...success

Burn 6 (burn 5 was TY)

1-18% (6X)
19-100% (8X)...total burn time 7:50...success

Burn 7:

1-18% (6X)
19-100% (8X)...total burn 7:45...success...

The last two burns were a different lot of TDK...seems that my first batch is questionable in quality...the second batch I opened today is OK.

Your experiment teaches some of us not to jump to conclusion and start blaming and blasting the software maker(with name calling....sucks..). We all have to appreciate the company who use its resources and manpowers and time to make constant improvement to thier products that we all enjoed and have these improvement for free.

I agree...

I have had issues with these TDK's since I purchased the 25 pak at Staples a month or so ago. Then, CompUSA put them out this week for $20 for 15. Different lots make a big difference.

I normally burn Verbatim 4X Data Life Plus disks...but the TDK prices have been way too attractive to pass up. The first lot has had problems with burn speeds. Using two from the new lot...and both burn great. Too bad there's no way to know before you buy.

Oh well...

Nero 6.0.0.28 looks like a winner to me.

Nice "suckup".
Q.Why don't other burn software(eg.NTI,Sonic,Roxio) have updates everyweek?
A.Because they get it right the first time.

I'm not criticizing drive updates(eg.CDROM.CFG),but to have a 12MB+ update every other week is rediculous.

Ahead Nero is not as good as it was some time before

Postby matibaer on Wed Dec 03, 2003 5:03 am

Ok, it is a hard market - more and more DVD-Burner,
plus- and minus-standard in the same device ...


I think this is exactly the reason for some faults in its software.

For example I wrote Ahead some weeks before that in Version 6.0.0.23 the remaining time for slower burning-processes will be shown wrong !
I got no answer.
Now I updated to 6.0.0.28 and the same error still exists.

I take a DVD-R (2x) and try to burn it 2x (Remaining time shown : 14.xx)
I take a DVD-R (2x) and try to burn it 1x (Remaining time shown : 14.xx)
This must be the time for a 4x recording, but not for 2x or 1x !

Ok, this is a very minor bug, but as easy it could to be removed.

My experience is that often the recording media or the device-firmware is responsible for errors and bugs, but more and more the recording-software "Nero" is responsible.
Many errors occured only with specified nero-versions.
Other versions have let other bugs appearing.

I agree with TCAS.

The frequent posts to this forum by the Ahead reps is appreciated as well.
I used to be indecisive, but now I'm not so sure...

Ahead or not ahead - that is here the question

Postby matibaer on Wed Dec 03, 2003 11:36 am

I agree in so far that ahead cannot be responsible for all errors,
I agree that many faults are made by firmware or media.

But I made my experiences which often speaks another language.


It´s a hard job for ahead - let them make it better !

Try doing some comparisons between Nero 5 and 6 before you think Nero 6 is fault free. I think the biggest contributor to the problem is the software... however, like Bob, I have found big differences in quality between batches of media.

IMO it's just about at the point where I would have released it if it was my product. However, there is a point in the development lifecycle where "growing pains" are no longer acceptable.
