Problems when trying to burn at 52X.
the setup is as follows (thats how i set it up and thats how the BIOS sees it as well):
MASTER: Maxtor Hard Disk Master (ATA133)
SLAVE: Removeable hard drive bay (ATA133 compatible)
MASTER: Liteon 52X burner
SLAVE: Pioneer 116s DVDROM
MSI KT3 Ultra ARU
768MB DDR PC2700
Nero Burning Rom v220.127.116.11
DMA Enabled for all devices
1st problem, since installing the new burner 2 months ago, DVD Decrypter or any DVD rippin software wont buffer and takes about 1hr to rip a DVD or 30 min just rip 5-10min chapters to the hard disk etc.
2nd problem, i had the IDE channel 2 devices around the other way originally. Back then i set the burner to burn at 52X, NERO said it was burning at 52X, but it still took 4min for a CD, and now since changing the drives around, it has taken took 6 min and 7min + to burn a full 700MB DATA from hard disk, exact same data both times. and the hard disk are defragged and theres plenty of cache.
so any suggestion of what else i can try to get the burner up to speed?
and also on the IDE cables, i just want to check the order of devices:
BLUE = MOTHERBOARD
GREY = SLAVE
BLACK = MASTER
becuase maybe thats what i got wrong.
hopefully i dont run into any further problems. will be putting RAID 0 array in, in a few weeks. The i plan to put the DVD and CDR on seperate channels both as master, havent decided where to stick the removeable bay yet though. any suggestions.
