    I have just purchased a Pioneer 06 DVD Writer this week primariliry attracted to the 4x speed capability and also the fact that it is down to £129. My problem is that it still takes about 50 mins to read a DVD and pretty much the same time to write it. Is this right ? I've ran the Nero speed test and it comes bach at 2x reading ??

    Help

    Nah, that aint right, check your DMA settings and reverse them depending on what they are

    I've just done that and it's made it worse - now only 1x using Nero Speed tool V2.0

    Here's my setup;

    Nero 6
    Windows 2000
    Sony 24x 10x 40x CDRW Drive (Location 0)
    Pioneer 106 (Location 1)
    Primary IDE Channel Device 0 PIO Device 1 PIO
    Secondary IDE Channel Device 0 PIO Device 1 PIO

    This was after I changed from DMA if available on all settings

    I think so, would they not have been installed as part of Nero 6 ?

    Don't buy the pioneer 106...

    Darn! Too late again!

    Make sure the media is rated 4x...if you want 4x burns...
