I've purchased a px-716a recently and dvd burning takes forever. Initially, the drive was plugged into the old IDE ribbon that was in the computer. I figured that slow burning was due to the fact that I didn't use the ribbon that came with the drive. I plugged in the ribbon that came with the drive just now and it still burns DVDs extremely slow.
I'm using Nero to burn DVDs, 8X DVD-Rs. Nero "allows" me to burn at 12X. It takes about 25+ minutes to burn a single DVD.
Well, my computer specs are:
1.5GB PC3200 RAM
I searched the forum for this and nothing useful came up.
Edit: The jumper on the plextor drive is set on master.
