So I recently purchased a Liteon 20A1P.
I am using the latest firmware (KLON)
The drive is UDMA 4 enabled
Using a new 80 pin IDE cable (also tried 2 others)
Bios is up to date.
Using Verbs DVD+R MCCOO4 and TDK DVD-R TTH02 (crap I know)
Tried uninstalling the IDE channel
Drive is set to master
I cant seem to burn faster than x8 or x6. A couple of times Ive had it burn at the speed I selected it at. The graphs shows the burn speed go up to around 10 - 12 but then dies and levels at around 8 - 6.
The cpu doesnt seem to be under an excessive load whilst burning, and the burst speed is right so I cant understand why this is happening. If anyone can shed some light on this I really appreciate it as I (think) I’ve tried everything.
Here’s a benchmark and a graph of the burn. I know the media choice is poor but it does exactly the same with Verb’s so I thought I’d save them.
