I beleave I have found where the problem lies with this its a bug in makeuef 2.3 and HQ UEF files, which means any HQ UEF made with makeuef Ver 2.3 is not 100%
^might have a micro second missing from lead in, but mine actually work, so don't care! :D

I hear the lead-ins are very short on the 1st block and its a hq uef and uses dummy bites which explains the very short lead in as Makeuef ver 2.3 contains the dummy bite block bug see viewtopic.php?p=238965#p238958 hopefully one of the days it will get fixed :)

It's not a case of a ms missing its that the dummy byte is sitting right up against the data block and causes problems, as its seen as being part of the data block instead of being seen as a separate dummy byte.
