how's it goin? i haven't been to the forum in awhile and this is probably a redundant question but i can't seem to find it in the search. i recently updated from nero 6 to 7 and all seems to be well except one thing. the used read buffer during the burning stages while using the burning rom part of the software. when i used nero 6 my entire used read buffer filled up and it burnt fine. now when using nero 7 my used read buffer fills to about 40% then stays there and the process takes up to like 15 minutes [ vs. like 8 mins in the past @ 8x] the dma is set on all drives [hd's and optical drives] i 'm running 2g's of ram i have a pent 4 3ghz processor and the aspi layer is up to date [4.71] i uninstalled the software and went back to nero 6 and it worked fine like it used to. i then reinstalled nero 7 and now back to slo burning and half filled used read buffers. any suggestions or miracle fixes? i appreciate all whom read this post and try to help. thanx!
