Burning discs at 1.0x

for some reason, now burning a video DVD or a data DVD will take up to 25-30 minutes, when it used to do it in less than 10 minutes…

so i’ve checked the speed and it’s burning at 1.0x, I use TDK DVD’s and the max is 16x, so I always burn at 12x, but now even if I select any speed it will still copy at 1.0x or lower…

also tried with other media and cd’s but no improvement so far.

tried with ONES and Nero and nothing seems to change, updated the firmware version, uninstalled programs but still nothing… what could be going wrong, does the unit have some “reading-writing” options by default that are modifiable or that depends on the application you use to burn?

i just created another flac dvd and i noticed that it never went above 1.0x, it actually started to constantly decrease until reaching a ridiculous speed of 0.6x

it’s an lg gsa-h22n

someone recommended checking if the transfer method was PIO or DMA, I don’t remember how it was before, today when I checked it was PIO, changed it to DMA, booted but still burning at 1.0x or less, actually my last disc took 63 minutes to complete!

any thoughts or suggestions?

Remove and reinstall the IDE channel to which the drive is connected. [Do this in device manager. Find the channel where the drive resides, uninstall it, and reboot. The drive should return to DMA].

I was playing with that VBS script… Booted, burned a DVD… 5 minutes :bow:

And to think I almost got a new burner! Sweet :clap:
