    I just got this burner and dont get me wrong it is awesome. It burns perfect raw copies and is fast fast fast, but I cant get the T@2 feature workin. Its supposed to burn graphics and text onto
    the unused portion of a cd but it doesnt. The T@2 software is pretty basic so I dont think Im screwin that up. I tried several
    brands of cds and couldnt get an image to show up so I tried
    the 1 cdr yamaha included with the burner and got an ever so slight image of the picture I was tryin to T@2. Anyone else have this thing yet? I know its a gimmick but Id like to use it now and then. If it was a laser problem youwouldnt think it would do a normal burn right? Or am I wrong? Please help me out if anyone knows anything about this. Thanks

    If you can't get the T@2 feature working, how can "it burn perfect raw copies and is fast fast fast...?"

    Thats exactly what I want to know. It burns programs and 1 to 1 copies fine but the T@2, which burns graphics and text onto the face of the disk does not work, at least not work properly. T@2 is a program within Nero that is included with the burner. Maybe Im
    not using the software correctly but its pretty cut and dry. Anyone
    else havin probs with this thing?

    You mean on the recording surface? i thought it labels graphics and texts on the top of the cd....cuz whats the point of of burning graphics and text on the unused portion of the cd if u cant really see it

    yep, only burns on the un-written part of the CD - so kinda limited if you have a full CD you get no Tattoos.

    I have read it is very media dependant too, so it might be writing but you can't see it :eek:

    You should pop over to www.cdrlabs.com where that did a review on it and have some knowledgable type peeps that could help you :D

    Thanks for the link, When I bought this drive I too was under the impression that it labeled the label side and not the burning side.
    Kinda dissapointed but its still a cool idea. It did burn an image to
    the blank cd that came with the drive but its barely noticable. The
    graphics they show on the box are incredible but alas the more
    info you put on the cd thr less room you have for graphics. Not to mention it only works with cd-r and the disc has to be closed to write your graphics to it so you cant havea multi disc.
