I’m thinking about an upgrade to V8, so I installed the demo.
First try: Mastered a project as usual and burned my montage to a CD-RW
from Verbatim (8-12x), also as usual at 10x speed.
Unusual was, that WL8.02 stopped working during finalizing the CD. The drive lamp was off…
After extra 20min I killed the WL process, because I did not want to wait longer.
Erasing the CD-RW before burning was normal.
Now the drive (Pioneer DVR-109, PATA) was not accessible anymore even from
other applications nor windows itself.
Second try after rebooting may DAW. I switched power completely off to ensure it is really off!
Started WL8 with my montage again, took another used CD-RW, erased it from WL and burned the audio.
After while WL showed up an errror occured during burning. Unfortunately I could not remember that
message exactly. The drive was no more accessible as before.
Rebooted again as before and tried a new CD-RW on my 2. drive (a SATA Lite-On) and
everything was ok.
Was my drive defect? First I burned a common DATA-CD with a burning software. Worked!
Then I tried to burn another montage but now from WL7 on my DVR-109. And it did
But I did not try again burning a CD-RW from WL8… because only few are left…

At least I took a look at those discs and now I understand why the french people call a CD-writer a
