Hope someone can fill me in with some info here.
I am burning with NERO Ultra 6.0 and using Pioneer DVR-106. The buffer level is fluctuating from 5% to 98% the entire burn thus slowing it down considerably.
I checked the IDE channels and everything is on DMA and nothing is PIO. I have defragged all the HD's in my PC. I have used Intel's Hardware Accelerator to boosts hardware performance. Is there anything else I can do??
Here are two things I need answered:
1) I have 2 HD's on my primary channel and 2 DVD drives (one dvd/cd-rw and one dvd-rw) on my secondary channel. Someone mentioned to me that I should put 1 HD and 1 DVD drive on the primary and 1 HD and 1 DVD drive on the secondary channel. Would that help at all? Right now my Pioneer DVR-106 is the master and my DVD/CD-RW is the slave.
2) My 3rd HD is on an ATI controller card. Where can I locate it in Device Manager to make sure it is in DMA mode and not PIO??
Any other suggestions would be great, but I have ran every cleanup utility possible from defragging, spybot, registry cleaner, startup items, everything I have checked to improve my pc performance the best I can. Any suggestions??
