I am a newbie to CDfreaks so be gentle... I have been burning DVD's for a couple of months with no problems..
I have a Dell Dimension 8400 with 2-160g configured in RAID 0 SATA Hardrives and 1g of Ram, with 2 Plextor PX716A DVD copiers. I have been copying DVD's using Nero and for months they would take about 6 or 7 minutes to copy a DVD using Memorex 16X speed -dvd's. This past week for some unknown reason it slowed and is now taking an hour to do the same copy.... I formatted and reinstalled Windows XP ... it didn't help... I am still experiencing the same slow performance..
I have tried unistalling the drivers and reinstalling, uninstalling Nero and reinstalling, updating the Firmware from the manufacture (Plextor) and still no improvement. I have read some information on changing the settings from PIO to DMA on the DVD drives but I can't find any setting to make this change.. or if this change would work.
Can some one ... anyone... please help?
