    Sometime last week i burnt a dvd at 8x and it only took like 15 mins. Today when i tried to burn a dvd it took over an hour. I burnt a cd to see if it was the burner and it went fine. Does anyone have any idea why it is taking so long now. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

    Thanks a lot

    What program are you using to burn with?
    Is your drive in DMA mode? May have went to PIO mode

    my recorder buffer level is constantly moving, from like 5 to 87 to 90 to 15 to 5 and so on but the used read buffer stays at 100. it never used to do this. i dont know but maybe that has something to do with the problem.

    I don't know. I had the same problem with a 4x burner. I needed an upgrade anyway so I replaced it with a 16x DL drive. I would try your burner in another pc to isolate whether it is the drive or possibly software or hardware conflict before replaceing the drive.

    i just installed the drive in a different computer, and the burn speed was normal. i dont really know what this means, maybe something is wrong with my computer. if you have any help please it would really help.

    could it maybe be an ide controller

    I can't offer any more suggestions. My new drive isn't working exactly like it should. I think I may have a bad IDE channel on my motherboard. I'm building a new pc next week so oh well.

    themick07,

    Looks like you ruled out any problem with your drive. The only suggestions I can give you are: defrag your hdd, run a spyware-adware tool, if you have nero IN CD or roxio get rid of them. GL I hope you get it figured out.
