Hi again. Just tried my first music Cd with new LG 8141B and it didn't go so great. I also got rid of Adaptec and used nero ( as all suggested on this site) for the first time.
I started with Nero express and couldn't find a way to select the order of the songs i wanted to burn, so I went with full nero. I burned at 48X, but was surprised how long it took - most of the time seemed to be used for 'calculations'. Anyway, stuck the finished CD in a player and got all sorts of crackling/static noises. Rats.
I did a quick search and found a few others with the same problem on drives of the same speed. One fix was to remove the slave drive on the secondary IDE ( I have an ASUS 40x CD-Rom there). So I did. I was in a rush to make a CD so on my next attempt, I used musicmatch jukebox and burned at 40X. The CD sounded great!
So what was most likely the problem?
CD-Rom as a slave on the same cable?
the burn speed?
I only ask ( the experts) as I don't wish to make a whole bunch of coasters through experiemtation.
If it is the Cd-Rom as a slave on the secondary IDE, is there a workaround for this? By the way, I copied the music off the drive, not CD-ROM, it empty.
Finally, does burn speed have an effect on sound quality?
thanks in advance!
