I a newbie so bare with me.......
I've read thru the forum / faqs and now I'm here.
I have an older Gateway SOLO 9300 pro E P-3 500Mhz w/ 288 mb ram ( WIN ME ) 30 GB hdd.
I am using the latest version of DVDD
I have a BENQ 1620 in a Coolmax USB2.0 ( cd-509-u2 ) external enclosure.
I am using fuji DVD+R Disc ( you'll see the ID in the log below )
I've tried diffrent burning speeds.
I've tried diffrent media ( 1st try was Maxell DVD-R ) those didn't work, so I got these new ones' better, but still having problems.
No matter what speed set it to, It wont go over 0.5 X
I have flashed the firmware to GM79 ( from g7z9)
I have flashed it to some new "b" firmware as well, I have ne tried the 47L9 ( I believe it was ) I hope flashing it this much wouldn't screw it up ( ?? )
I took some home movies and used nero to burn them, the nero log says it burned @ 16x ( the file was small , the test movie was only 30 secs. )
Here's the log file from DVDD below........
That's all I guess I can really say.....if anyone needs specifics' let me know.....
Thanks in advance
