hi, I just bought a CyberDrive 36x12x48 (cw068D), i upgraded from a 8x, so i thoght this would be really fast but not so, it burns a 700 MB in over 5-6 minutes and i check on the speed using nero (5.59) it only can write at 24x (i am using TY 32x CD-Rs).
The only thing i could think of is the jumper setting on my IDE cable, i set it at CS(cable select), beck, i don’t even know what it means, but that was what was set on my old burner. on the same IDE cable was my zip drive. my DMA is enable after reading some other forums (that help took a couple of minutes off, when i first install it—it took 8 minutes for a 680MB data cd :Z )
well, i hope somebody can help, thanks a lot
