I burn DVD movies on a daily basis but have noticed that if I go any higher than 4X on burning speed, my Nero 6 starts getting into buffer mode ( ie. The burner has to stop or slow down before the buffer has enough data ). The burner does this on any burn which is 6x or higher. All my blank media is 8x or more and I use various good quality blanks. I use all 80pin cables.My configuration is as below:
Soltek SLFRN2L Mobo
1024 ddr RAM
Pri Master : 20GB Maxtor 2B020H1 (Applications)
Pri Slave: DVD Rom â€“ 16P9S â€“ Liteon
Sec Master: DVD Burner â€“ DVR-111D Pioneer
Sec Slave: 80GB Seagate Hard Drive ST380021A ( Video editing )
Please advise so that I can burn at higher speeds without running into the buffer mode or having my burn stop while the buffer is getting filled with data. I feel that the data transfer from the DVD rom is not getting fast enough into the burner although it is fast. Please advise.
