This is my first time posting here and I hope I’m not making any errors while asking these questions. ^^
All this while I was always burning CDs at max speed and always verified them before viewing them at another person’s computer. I have rarely done a bad burn and usually when errors occured it will be detected during verification time.
One day, a friend of mine asked me to burn a movie for him that was in my computer at a lower speed. I have never done this before but i think it will not affect my burner in anyway. The burn was slow as imagined but the next burn when I tried to burn it at max speed, my burner couldn’t do it. From that moment on until today I’m burning at a very slow speed averaging 20 minutes including verification which now always says i have errors during burn time.
My friend realised that my buffer speed wasn’t max as it always had been and although there were errors during verification but the CDs always read fine. What is really bugging me is the speed at which my burner burns which is extremely slow although set at max speed.
My burner : LG GCE 8525B (with 1.05 firmware). Been using this for a year and a half now.
My burning program : Nero 220.127.116.11 Enterprise Edition. I always use Nero Express. (I have uninstalled and installed the program after my burner began working badly)
P.S : what are the general ettiqutte of burning a cd? Is my way of burning at max speed and later verifying a “wrong” method?
Thanks in advance for helping me with my first post
