I used to achieve fairly fast speeds while burning at 16x... usually around 12 mins... however lately it's been taking almost 30 minutes!

That just seems TOO slow??
I've read the plextor FAQ and read about the "PIO", and i followed the suggestions, however in one of my channels, i selected "DMA if available" but PIO was still selected, however all the others had either DMA 4,5, or 6. not sure what channel the plextor is on. Anyway, does anyone have any suggestions on how to burn faster? Thanks in advance!
