    Please Wait 30 days... hmm and its been 5 weeks?

    They said on the rebate form please wait 5-8 weeks go by that. If you do not receive it than call them back after the 8th week. If they still tell you to wait never buy anything with rebate again :p

    I think you are taking the received date as the starting date of the 30 days. That is not necessarily the case, the current status says within 30, I don't know when was the first time you saw that message but if it was more than a month ago then you should worry, otherwise wait. I don't kow if I am clear with what I am saying. Anyway who was the retailer? In any case they have been good in the past, so I don't think you should worry yet.

    Cendyne is the PARENT company of Verbatim's optical drive division. Cendyne is the one responsible for paying out Verbatim rebates, and Cendyne doesn't seem to be sending the money to Parago so parago isn't mailing out the checks. Or so some have been told this by parago. That's why both yer cendyne and verbatims are in a coma.

    Now, the rumours at this point go farther, with some wondering if cendyne is going under and about to pull a visiontek on people. But, those are just rumours.

    If you follow threads on anandtech or fat wallet, especially FW, there's a lot of people with outstanding verbatim/cendyne rebates.

    As for Maxtor...now that WILL come. However, not within 30 days, more like 90. I had a maxtor rebate from september arrive in december, but, it DID show. Your maxtor rebate will come, Maxtor is not going anywhere, it's just gonna take about 10 weeks. The sooner the manufacturer gives parago the funds, the sooner parago mails the money. Which is why you can send in a rebate for a 50 pack of maxells and get it within 1 month while a maxtor rebate takes 3. Maxell seems to pony up the dough quickly, but then considering most of their rebates are all 10, 12, 20, 5, they should be able to now shouldn't they.

    Technically, you have to allow 8-10 weeks for your rebate to be mailed. You can ----- before then if you want, but the bog standard CSR at staples or parago won't do anything other than listen, and say have a nice day. In so many words. It's possible cendyne is just slow, they may all get paid, who knows right now. If you think you're alone when it comes to Cenbatym, you're not.

    If it hasn't been used previously, I'd like to copyright the word cenbatym. Probably has, anyway, gotta love whoever came up with Itanic

    I won't touch anymore deals with cendyne or verbatim for this reason, I'm already at risk of being out hundreds, not gonna add to the loss.

    Having the same issues here. I'm still waiting for the same 3 Rebates, 2 Verbatim and 1 Cendyne. They are about the same dates as yours. Rebates HQ has the same message as yours. So I Called in yesterday and the CSR told me that the 30 days starts right now since I called in, 12/10/02. Tried to aruge but didn't think it was going anywhere. I think they just trying to push it out further and further. What a bunch of crap. I just have to cross my fingers and hope that it comes. You should call CSR and see what they say. Maybe u have better luck..

    Unless I'm doing something wrong the damn 40X12X48 CDRW sucks anyways, takes 10 Minutes to record from CD to CD. CDRW sucks and no rebate checks.

    Let me know when and if you get rebate check or when they updated the status and I will do the same. Peace out

    If yer in XP, by default UDMA is disabled for all drives on second IDE controller, so check that.

    Second, drive to drive copy on the same channel is always going to be slow. You're pushing 2 streams of info simultaneously thru one channel, it's kinda like when you have 2 downloads going on at one time, they won't both go at the fastest speed possible for your connection but rather each will run at half.

    TECHNICALLY that's not the best way to put it, but, it works.

    Lastly, verbatim/cendyne drives are made by dif companies, liteons are solid, acer is fine, think they have some optorites in there for the verbatims and those sorta kinda sucked.

    How many digits did your drive's serial numbers have, and did they have any letters in them or all numbers?

    Hey cpaladin,

    I am using XP, I have IDE1 CDRW master, and CDrom slave
    I have IDE2 40 GB harddrive master.

    I tried swapping CDRW with harddrive but i get errors.

    Is having 2 drives on same IDE port causing me to time to copy cd to cd. Is there any other possibilities i can use. Or am I stuck
    with this config.
    Both my Cendyne and Verbatim CDRW has 12 digits(numbers) as serial no. and both are model no. VBT401248a. Which one is better to use or they the same? what is lite-on and what is acer. This is first time I installed these drives. Thanks for your help

    Both your drives are lite-ons which is good. the lite -ons are more apt to copy anything out there, using the right cloning cd software. why would you want to do drive to drive anyway? alot slower and I think you need scsi drives to do that. I have to drives and I recored to my hard drive then to my cd no buffer underuns

    You can do drive-to-drive when both source and writer are on the same channel, but you'll NEVER be able to burn at say 40x. It doesn't matter if you're reader is 40x, with the computer having to both read information AND send information on the same channel, at the same time, it's never gonna fly UNLESS you have scsi.

    Or a cdrw with a massive cache. :D

    You could probably do an 8 or 12x on the fly burn..

    You're best bet in Nero is to UNCHECK fast copy/on the fly in the wizard settings. Likewise, when doing it manually, for an audio disc DO check "cache the track on harddisk before burning".

    Basically, you want the source drive to be on one channel, and the write drive to be on a different channel. In this way, you'll get a smooth, uninterrupted flow of information.

    Can you carry on a complex, articulate discussion with one person WHILE still someone else is speaking directly into your ear, AND get everything they are saying?

    No?

    Neither can the computer.

    Some other things to try. Try DISABLING umda for the burner. For some, it needs to be on, for others, you get less errors with it disabled, it kinda varies from burner to burner and individual configuration to configuration. Try either or.

    Try burning at a slower speed. Not all burners like all media. This is infamous. If you can burn fine at say 32x, but not 48x, that could be it. Maybe you're computer isn't fast enough to send the information as fast as the writer can write it? If the writer runs out of things to write, it looks in the cache, when that's exhausted, bingo, you got a coaster. Try different media as well.

    ..and yeah..like Ndiguy said..snag some 12x cdrws and go at it, at least then you aren't making coasters. Course, you ARE getting your 50 packs of cdrs for like 2-4 bucks after rebate, and only paying a nickel a pop right?

    If ya are, coaster away in your experiments, it don't cost much. ;)
