CD-R not burning right

Hi All.
 I've purchased a COMPRO 4x8x CD-R.
 It works perfectly, except that if i try to copy
 mixed cd's (ie. CD's that have NO 2 second gap, etc)
 then the CD that is just been burnt now HAS a 2 second
 gap .. which is something i can't have.
 I make my own mix CD's and .. well .. 2 second
 gap is aweful.

 Anyways, i've applied the latest firmware from the
 how page - My Computer / Properties / CD-R and the
 firmware is 4.10 (memory is foggy..)

 Anyways, sofware i'm using is :
 o Gear (latest version)
 o DiskJuggler (latest version)
 o Adaptec CD Creator (Beta 4 i think)

 Anyways, where Adaptec lets you tick Disk-At-Once,
 it's all *ghosted out*
 SCSI info- 0 / 6 <- if that makes any sence. I think
 6 is the ID num and 0 is the board or whatever ...

 ???

 so.. can someone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!!
 *desperate*

The most successful program I've used for copying multimode CDs is Adaptec EZ-CD pro. You can download it from a number of places, I think it shareware but I could be wrong. I got a copy with a CDR.

It sounds like the problem is software related, so try EZ-CD pro. Failing that, try creating an ISO image on your hard drive, then writing this to the CD in one go. It could be putting gaps between sessions, so if you do it as one session you won't get them.

If yours is an IDE drive....  many of them do not support DAO (Disk At Once) recording.
Use the create, and then copy image from hard disk method.

I'll try the copy image from hard disk method, but I believe i shouldn't. My Burner is SCSI, and i'm sure i've got that program also at home.

The company (who have failed to respond to my email) says that it IS DAO ...

very weird.
