Crazy timer

Postby Jordache on Wed Aug 27, 2003 6:52 pm


I have ECDC 4 Basic and the following problem:after I start the burning process the timer that shows how much time is left until the cd is created , decreases or increases by 20 or 30 seconds even minutes.The cd is burned ok(i think) but this thing worries me.I have an lg writer and this thing didn't happen until 2 weeks ago.With other programs like Clonecd or Stomp Record Max this thing doesn't happen at all.Is my writer damaged?

I would just ignore the timer. Software timers are notorious for resetting frequently and producing inaccurate swings in estimates. Some programs and operations are worse than others, but overall it isn't a highly accurate procedure.

If the burning program is otherwise satifactory, use a stopwatch to measure the burn time if you want accurate results. If the burn time is not what should be expected for the burn speed setting, then further investigation may be required.
