So only this media takes very long to burn, others don't ?
Yes, this is the only time this has happened with a 4x rated media. When I use the Fuji+(TY) media it's much faster than the - TY. The drive would speed up for 3 seconds than stop for about the same time repeatedly to the end.
I have been using Fuji (made in Japan TY TO2) and have been very happy with the results. This is my first time buying authentic TY media and if this is the result then it will be the last time for me.
So you might have a very fragmented hard drive that couldn't keep up with BenQ
I always defragment before I burn. I also turn everything off before burning, firewall, antivirus etc...
I have used other -media without this result. I was starting to think that it took so long that maybe I received some fake TY discs. I bought them at NCIX which I hear has a good reputation. I thought that maybe Benq does not like - media, what do you guys think?
I have NVIDIA chipset, 128 MB, DDR, 8x AGP. I did try to turn off WOPC but no significant difference. I have the K700 chipset.
