Hi

seems I'm lucky enough to get most bugs. This one occurred when I was burning finished tracks to CD - 6 tracks in all. The machine stopped with a "writing completed" message but didn't eject the disk or continue with the normal write once more blurb. After about 5 mins I started frantic button pressing. They were all dead, including the CD tray button. A press on the song button actually opened the CD drawer but that was it.

I had to turn the machine off and reboot. I went on to successfully burn a further 6 discs with no problem.

I just had the same exact thing happen to me (6 songs, too). The second CD in a disk-at-once series. Had to turn off and back on. The CD was complete and properly finalized. This was on an inexpensive HP 52x CD-R, burning at 8x with "compare" on.

Hey, it just happened twice again, each time on the 2nd CD of the set, same medium (except the 6th disk was an Imation 48x CD-R).

My G is 2 months old. Perhaps I should contact Yamaha?

The CD unit is not happy will all brands of CD-R.

I use Memorex and TDK without any problems. Put the writer on 4 speed and there's another setting you should check: I believe it is the buffer underrun protect (that should be set to on). I'm sure if I missed anything one of the other members will come along and make it complete.

Hope this helps

Robbie

Yep - I found that burning at 4X speed and enabling underrun protect eliminated most of my burning problems, although my problems were always of the "aborted in the middle" variety. I never had it lock up on me at the end of a burn.

I usually neglect to observe speed limits. But 4x does sound like good advice, thanx.
