I’m new to burning DVD’s, so forgive me if this is a stupid question.
I was having a horrible problem burning movies using Nero7, most would fail, and sometimes lock up my PC to the point that I couldn’t even abort the program or open the drive until I restarted. I did some research (Googled it) and found this site, where I learned about flashing firmware. My Philips DVD drive was flashed to the BenQ1640 with BSRB, and I was able to successfully burn a disc last night. Now my only problem is speed. The drive is rated to burn up to 16x, and so is the media that I am using (Memorex DVD-R 16x). So why is it that I can’t top 1.2 or 1.3x? I have tried burning at 2,4,6,8,16x, all with the same results. Any ideas?
