View Full Version : Burner Problem

12-15-00, 03:04 PM
Ok, heres the problem. Every time I want to burn a CD, I use Nero btw, it freezes up. Nothing else running in backround. The buffer % gets up to 70 and stays there, and progesss doesnt move, but the timer does. Any ideas? Its a Samsung CDRW. Its a Master, with the DVD as slave. I never had this problem before.

Nero sux. Make sure you got the latest ASPI Drivers installed.

Thanks Tiger. Can i get these from manufacturers website?

ASPI drivers are from Adaptec so you gotta install 1 of their CD softwares or else you can't get ASPI. Doesn't Nero require ASPI?

I rather like nero http://www.speedguide.net/ubb/smile.gif Its simpler and I like the interface. I've had better luck w/ it than EZ CD creator.

I have ezcd creator and nero. EZcd requires me to make mp3s into wavs, and that takes up alot of space on the cd.

First of all, Adaptec EZCD Creator 4 can burn MP3 files directly to Audio. Just use the Audio CD Layout and select the MP3's you want to burn and it will convert it for you. If you want to create an MP3 CD, use the Data Layout like glc1 said. Nero can also do this. I personally use Nero for Audio and Data CD's.

Secondly, you don't have to install an entire Adaptec product just to get the ASPI drivers installed. Just go to their site and download the ASPI drivers file.

The two files are:
aspichk.exe - checks to see whether you have ASPI correctly installed and tells you the version you have installed.

aspi32.exe - the install file for the ASPI Drivers.

If anyone wants these files, email me, and I'll email them to you.
