I got a great deal on the Plextor 482448U external USB 2.0 burner at Best Buy and thought I would demo it and compare it to the LTR 52246S that I have installed in a USB 2.0 enclosure.
I also wanted to try "on the fly" burning as I have never done this before and wanted to see if I could use the LTR to read at 52x and then burn on the Plextor at 40X. However, when I choose the LTR as the source drive in Nero it won't let me select the "on the fly" box as it is grayed out. I actually noticed this to be the case before I bought the Plextor. I am using the latest version of Nero (5.5.10) and it is registered.
However, when I go into Plextools it does allow me to select the LTR as the source drive and burn "on the fly" to the Plextor, which I was able to do.
I'm trying to figure out why this won't work with Nero. I've read the manual and it only says that if you are unable to activate this feature, then the read drive is also the burn drive. However, this is not the case since I have another burner installed so I'm wondering what else it could be. I have checked all of my preferences in Nero and don't see any settings that could be causing this to occur.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
