    Hello, I have had this burner for a while now. However, when I first got it, it used to copy discs in about a half an hour, now all of a sudden it takes double that. I am using DVD X Copy xpress with the DVD43 client. I was wondering if anyone could help. thanks.

    You might want to tell us what model your burner. Sony has many. But in the meantime check to see if it's set to DMA mode and not PIO.

    However, when I go back into the device manager. I changed it to DMA if available, but the device is still using PIO.

    It may help to uninstall the drive through Device Manager by following these steps:

    Go to Device Manager >

    Expand the tree for DVD/CD ROM Drives >

    Find the drive in question, right click it and go to Properties >

    Under the Driver tab, select Uninstall then OK.

    Now reboot and Windows should detect and reinstall the drive.

    If this doesn't help try the same steps as above except expand the tree for IDE ATA/ATA Controllers and uninstall either the Primary or Secondary controller depending on which one the drive in question is attatched to.

    thanks for the help.
    Is there anyway I can keep it from going to the PIO mode?
