Hey all, I recently bought a nec2500a burner.
I flashed to herrie's 1.07b7 firmware, everything went fine.
I bought several different dvd media, memorex +/- and some ridata - discs.
Im using nero 6.3.xx and everything works well, I have the option of choosing to burn at up to 8x, but I stick with 4x.
Now this is what I'm wondering, how long should it take to burn 4.7gigs?
It takes me a good 30 minutues for completion.
My friend has a powermac and a liteon burner, takes him 15min. Someone else I know bought a sony burner (PC) and it also takes him 15min.
We are using the same media and at the same burning speed 4x.
Why is my burn speed so slow though?
I checked my channels and under primary- transfer mode is set to DMA if available and current is PIO mode (this is for my HD), the secondary channel (for my DVD burner)- transfer mode is set to DMA if available and current is ultra DMA mode 2.
I went into my bios but wasn't able to find an option to change/force my HD to DMA
The dvd burner is the only drive i have (no other cd rom/cdrw roms)
My computer specs are as follows
1.2 gig athlon
nec 2500a dvd burner
How do i get my burn speed from 30 to lower? like even 20mins?
Is it my ram that is not enough? or my CPU speed
thanks a lot~!
PS: Do I need to enable bitsetting? If so, how/where do I do that? for nero?
