Accesstek/optorite dd1205/hi-val hdvd12dd

I hve this dvd burner accesstek/optorite dd1205/hi-val hdvd12dd. My problem is once I flashed my firmware from 100i to 120i it now take a long time to copy dvds. The timing went from around 14 minutes for 8x media too 40 minutes. I use the same media as before all my setting are the same. I am also very interested in hacking my 120i to 120e. Please Help :frowning:

Enable DMA?
right above your thread!!

DMA is Enabled and the ASPI are working fine the only thing differant is that the DVD buffer fluctuates over and over again, but the user read buffer levels out at 50%. It use to be the dvd buffer stayed at 100% and the user read buffer fluctuated

New 80 wire IDE cable.
Defragging your harddrives.

I did all these things and it still burns too slow

I don’t know what your installation configuration is because you didn’t post it.
Try isolating the DVD writer as a master on it’s own IDE channel.
Try installing in a completely different PC and testing there.

Also, what is the MID code of the discs that you are using?

I isolated the DVD writer on its on IDE cable and now have my speed back. It still records Memorex 16x at a speed of 4x insted of 12x which is the max speed od the DVD writer. Here is the media code of the disk
