Power CD+G Burner Troubleshooting
General burn problems
If burn process failed, there are several issues that you may need to check:
Burning was successful but I cannot play a CD+G disc on my karaoke machine
Please try using lower burn speed when burning CDs. Also many karaoke players are picky when it comes to playing CD-R discs, so please try using different brand of discs (we recommend using audio-dedicated CDs, ideally with silver recording surface, TDK discs are known to be among the best). Also remember that most CD+G players will not play CD-RW discs.
Also please try if the CD you burn plays on your computer from CD drive using Siglos Karaoke Player/Recorder (demo version is available from http://www.powerkaraoke.com/download/siglossetup.exe ). If the CD plays on your computer then the problem is with media you are using.
When I play a CD+G disc on my karaoke machine I see frequent errors (missing letters or random dots)
Please try using lower burn speed when burning CDs and lower rip speed when ripping the disc. Also many karaoke players are picky when it comes to playing CD-R discs, so please try using different brand of discs (we recommend using audio-dedicated CDs, ideally with silver recording surface, TDK discs are known to be among the best).
Power CD+G Burner does not see my burner or has problems with it
Power CD+G Burner has two methods of accessing CD-R devices (so called burning engines). If the default one (Internal) is not working properly try switching to CDRDao mode -- to do this click on Settings and then select CDRDao as a burning engine.
ASPI is not available in my computer. Why?
Windows 95, 98 and ME come with a working ASPI manager but Windows NT, 2000 and XP do not have any ASPI manager at all. In rare situations, some other program may have replaced your ASPI manager even if you are using Win 95/98/ME.
Adaptec has many ASPI drivers available and they are free for anybody to download and install (you don't need to own an Adaptec SCSI card or software product). These drivers will also add support for ATAPI CDROM devices.
My CD-R drive is not detected or it refuses to work with this program.
It is possible that your drive is not MMC-compatible (you will not see it on the list of devices then) or it does not support DAO/96 mode (burn process will fail). You may try changing Use MMC-RAW driver setting in Settings dialog box. If it still does not work, then sorry, but there is nothing that can be done.
The track list is not displayed.
Power CD+G Burner uses FreeDB internet database to retrieve track names. Please make sure that you have FreeDB enabled in settings. Also you need to allow Power CD+G Burner to access the Internet (this is if you are using firewall software). If you are getting listings for some discs and others are not displayed, then probably latter are not available in FreeDB database -- it contains many discs, but not all. You may try changing the FreeDB server to
