#1

Im having a problem with this drive burning Full cdrs, it takes 3 mins… It used to take a bit over 2mins. It all happened when i updated from TS0C to TS0D. Ive disabled smart-burn just to make sure. My drive wouldnt use DMA, i finally got it to use it, but it still takes 3 mins per cd. Gone back to TS0C, no luck… updated Nero.

@ macka04
Welcome:). Those sound like typical burn speeds to me. Do you ever notice any buffer underruns during a burn? If a burn is a few seconds slower than ‘ideal maximum burn speed’, you may be experiencing some small data transfer glitches like fragmented files or if you are using your computer during a burn or you are burning many small files or you have a difficult-to-read disc/data or you are burning to less-than-ideal discs, maybe even a slightly extended disc closing times. Some of these issues can be resolved or minimized and some can’t. I would not be too concerned with a few extra seconds of burn time.
