problem with DVD burners. I use winXP-sp1 (only) + Nero 6.0136 (the newest) + IMG files to burn mounted from the slave drive 250GB + mounting using daemon. drive is are cleaned and defraged every week. Primary harddrive about 40GB and 50% full. Only burnt about 100DVD's Now, when i first recieved my NEC2510 products i burned lots and lots of disks with no problem what-so-ever. until two weeks ago, where the lenght of time it takes to burn a single layer 4.7GB disk has gone up from (Nero predicted) 6mins30sec to the now over running 9min49sec. I can actually hear what is happening the burners start up at 8xspeed then jump down to 4xspeed (@10%) for abotu 2mins then jump up again to 8speed.... carriers on then jumps down at about 54% then jumps up to 8xspeed (@63% when the time runs out)and finishes the rest of the durn off at 8speed. what is going on please. i cant work it out. When i first got the burners they would work to6mins regardless of whatever programs i ran in the back ground, but now anything that runs adds to the time. I have updates my firmware as well. as one of the remadies. well it has managed to sort some of the time delay out, but its crept back to 9+mins from just over 8mins after the firmware update. I cant work out whats going on. can someone help me.
