    Question Nero, Audio CDs and a "Long Write in Progress"

    Hello all,

    I have had a problem with Nero burning audio CDs for a while now. My CD-RW drive is an LG CD-RW CED-8080B (it’s an old 8x4x32x with a 2MB buffer). My OS is Windows 2000. When I try to burn an audio CD it fails saying “long write in progress”.

    I successfully flashed my CD-RW drive to the latest BIOS version. Now instead of getting an error when I try to burn an audio CD, Nero fills up the cache, then sits there doing nothing. I have left it for well over an hour. In the end I have to terminate the program because it won’t even cancel/quit.

    I used to use version 5. I have uninstalled that and installed version 6. But I still get the same behaviour. I am left thinking it must be a Windows related problem/conflict. I do have Alcohol 120% installed, could this conflict?

    Below is a log from version 5 before I flashed the CD drive. As Nero refuses to exit nicely I have been unable to save a log of the events since.

    Thanks,

    Anders.

    Guess no body seems to have any idea, although my post has just 9 views.

    My work around at the moment is to create a Nero image using the virtual recorder, then burn the image to CD using Alcohol. This works fine except Alcohol does not burn the CD text. Anyone know how to get Alcohol to do this? Alternatively can some recommend me another piece of software to burn Audio CDs, that does CD-text and Disc-At-Once?

    Thanks,

    Anders.

    Only been able to find limited info -

    1. Updating ASPI drivers

    2. Moving drive to diff IDE channel and testing.

    Thanks for the information.

    I now believe the problem to be related to writing the CD-Text. It looks like flashing the CD-RW BIOS may have fixed the "long write problem" or it simply revealed another.

    Basically Nero and Burnatonce burn Audio CDs fine when CD-text is disabled. Once enabled though, Nero stops responding. More helpfully Burnatonce times out, this is the log:

    I have had some similar problems, try enabling Overburn in Expert under preferences and try writing at a slower speed, are you using 650mb or 700mb discs? try 650 some older writers can be quite picky with todays media
