The program's text file says it can be done, but nobody seems able to hook me up. When burning audioCDs with cdrdao via EAC, I have no problems, and would like to rid my need for nero altogether, but I must be able to burn data CDs... Does anyone here know the command line and syntax (example?) to burn data CDs with cdrdao..?Apparently nero will auto-restart if there is an error with disc burning. I have no problems with burning audioCDs, but when doing data CDs I get indiscriminate crashes. Primarily I am burning Shorten arcives, and really just want to burn one folder (which contains .shn, .md5, and .txt files) to a disc. I have tried ISO and UDF. Both formats work (70%), and both crash (30%). I realize that the filenames might be long, so I relax that restriction. I have been unable to find what specifically makes the thing crash (for the record, no other apps are in the fore- or background). I am getting tired of making coasters...I have noticed that restarting after each burn allows for successful burning with more regularity (10 in a row-with a restart btween each-and counting)...What could be causing the crashes in nero when burning data CDs? Many thanks.
