I've Burned about 16 DVDs with my Liteon DVDRW SOHW-1633S drive, and they all take about 42 minutes to burn. It seems that whatever I do still doesnâ€™t help. Iâ€™ve tried everything I could think of, plus things that Iâ€™ve seen in other threads, and still no luck. I have a fairly new computer, so I just donâ€™t understand what the problem is. Iâ€™m getting so frustrated. I hope that you guys could help me out.
I have tried the following so far:
- Updated 1633S firmware to latest version (BS0S) 2004-12-14
- tried several different DVD Media
- DVD-Rs: Memorex 8X (RITEKG05)
Memorex 4X (CMC MAG. AF1)
- DVD+R: imation 4X (unknown ID)
Liteon 8X (unknown ID)
- Updated computer BIOS
- Reinstalled Nero oem, upgraded to NERO 188.8.131.52
I have attached a Nero InfoTool txt file for some information about my Computer HW/SW.
One interesting thing is that Nero Express seems to recognize the dvd media, states that it is burning at 8x (11080 kB/s) or 4x (5540 kB/s), but yet when it comes down to it, it still takes 42 minutes to burn, and then on top of it, says it was burning at 8x or 4x (see attached).
I also did a Nero CD Speed Test with an 8X DVD, but Im not too sure how to interpret the results.
Iâ€™m wondering if there is a buffer problem or something wrong with the IDE cable, or is it the drive?
