So I was baffled and in the middle of an awesome last semester of college, so I didn’t have too much time to worry about it. If I burn a 60min album at 1x it will be done in less than 10min. Think I’d be better off with this? So much for making mix cd’s for my friends. Again, too late to edit, but EDIT: Fri Dec 14, 4:

Time for bed, I’ll fiddle more tomorrow. That’s all well and good, but if it’s trying to extract digital audio at a speed the drive doesn’t support, I suppose that may be my problem with the skipping. If this is your first visit, be sure to check out the FAQ by clicking the link above.
I have never dd of the re e.
Re: Creative CD-RW RWE
Fri Dec 14, 8: I have the e and have not had any problems with it. So I was baffled and in the middle of an awesome last semester of college, so I didn’t have too much time to worry about it.
But I switched back to win98 to do some backing up of files onto discs, and for some reason the problem persisted after upgrading Nero burning software as a good little enthusiast does when a new version of something comes out. So going back to the OEM drive Samsung is not possible.
My friend’s in Win98SE. I can close the drive fine if there is nothing for it to load. I ignored the issue until just recently, and I’ve decided to switch to XP and wanted to back up my files.
Thought I’d give it all a try before getting rid of this drive. All times are GMT Am open to any further suggestions, Ego Dog edit: Fri Dec 14, Fri Dec 14, 7: It is going to sleep with the fishies.
CREATIVE CD-RW RW8438E resources, firmwares and drivers
Creatjve do appreciate the suggestions, although I’m afraid there is no way to do anything about the drive now. I don’t know how big a deal this is, but it may explain another problem I’ve been having with this drive and Nero, no matter what I set the write speed at, it ALWAYS writes at 8x.
Then, excepting those, I thought maybe it didn’t exist at all, and somehow windows was reporting the wrong drive installed. You may have to register before you can post: Jul 29, Posts: I looked for firmware updates at Creative’s website, but my specific model wasn’t even listed.
CREATIVE RWE resources and drivers
All of them fail for various reasons related to win32aspi. Figuring this was just a win2k compatibility issue, I awaited XP thinking it would fix the problem i. A buddy of mine has an identical drive same model with firmware FC02; his works flawlessly.
It failed due to what amounts to “wrong [drive] model” Thought I’d give it all a try before getting rid of this drive. Los Angeles, CA Registered: I have firmware revision FC03; this doesn’t seem related in any way to previous firmware.
I have seen two of them myself, they look completely different. When I use it to extract audio, that’s when there will be a skip in the music.
Nice 4MB buffer also, but of rw84388e no buffer underrun prevention technology like the nice new Plextors I had a and never had a lick of trouble with it. I will almost certainly be returning it soon, but I’d like the input of anyone who has used this particular CD-RW drive, especially anyone who has had similar problems.
