I have a Sony DRU-530A with the latest firmware that suddenly stopped recording at 8X. I am still using the same media, still connecting it through an external ISB 2.0 enclosure but now I don't get 8X speed.
When I look at the writing screen in Nero, I can see that the buffer level of the recorder goes back and forth between 2% and 60% every 2 seconds aprox. and as the recording progresses, the buffer continues to switch between 75% and 60%. Before this happened, I remember that this buffer stayed basically at 99% or more.
I am currently using Nero 6 Ultra edition and the only thing that has changed is that I added a new monitor to my computer and that I have installed a bunch of software lately like ANY DVD, DVD COPY and other DVD related applications.
Do you have any ideas on what could be going on?
Where should I look? Any good diagnosting tool ?
