Seems my 1610 died. It use to take me about 3mins to write to a musik CDR. Now it takes about 20-25 mins if it fully writes! A DVD movie i use to write in about 8-10 mins at 8X. Now it takes about 60-85 mins and most of the time the DVD gives me a coaster.
HOPE i get the 1620
Check your DMA settings. Measure the burst transfer rate with cdspeed.
