I get done with a montage. I bring up CD on the “tools” menu and put in all the track markers using “Q” and “S” and put in the start and ending markers. So far no problems. This is the same thing I have done for the last 30 CDs I burned. So I push the check button and WL says the CD is ready to burn. I burn the CD and try playing it and it works fine. I go to my duplicator (which I have used for the last 30 CDs) and it refuses to duplicate it. I try the same file with two different burners and get the same results. Not possible to duplicate. So my question is ANY IDEAS? All the other CDs burned without problems. I am stumped… Thanks in advance for any and all comments or suggestions.
The duplicator just sits there and does nothing after the normal checks. Normally after the checks it will start the duplication process and give me a listing of the tracks and the time to do the duplication. In this case it never starts.
We do a lot of restoration work and most times the client wants the results on a physical CD. In this case the client wanted two CD of each restoration.
Had this happen to me once. The CD length was something like 79’ 58". Played on my normal CD player, but the duplicator refused to copy it. As it was an audio magazine I could tweak it here and there to get the length down to 79’ 45" or thereabouts and it could then be duplicated on the copier.
From then on I always made sure the length was not over 79’ 30" to be on the safe side.
You were correct. The last Post Gap on the montage of the problematic disc was “+?” when it should have been a number. When I corrected the number it burned perfectly and duplicated the same as all the other disks. Thanks, I learned something today.
I thought those question marks were caught by the montage CD conformity check, but maybe not(?). I still don’t know what the question mark means, or how I’ve generated a cd marker that does that, but I have noticed it a few times in the past.
