    I have a DRU-540a and its max burning speed is 40x.. i installed 120% alcohol and changed the setting to safedisk 2/3 and burned my cd.. after it was finished i went to burn another cd and noticed that the max speed dropped from 40x down 32x so i closed alcohol and opened nero and noticed that it was at 32x as well..im using 48x compatible cd-rs and i was able to burn 2 cd's at 40x before installing alcohol about 20 mins earlier...does anyone know how to fix this?

    MilkStain,

    Have you checked to see if you're in DMA or PIO mode ?

    Device manager, IDE, your burner, advanced properties -

    You want DMA.

    You can always uninstall your burner and let windows find it again.

    Also, do a Defrag and most importantly, clean up your registry - that will slow you down no matter what else you've done -

    Check your ASPI LAYER -

    Recheck your Firmware -

    Cheers,

     ... maybe this thread belongs in the CD section instead of the DVD section ...
