I have just done a complete clean install of winxp pro with virtually nothing on it except dvd decrypter, pinanncle IC then Nero 6.011...I did not install apsi 4.71..I did turn off cd burning crap in winxp pro
P4 email@example.com 166 fsb
512 mg ram
IT 7 Max2 rev2 mobo
160 gb Maxtor 8 mg cache hdd
nec 1100A 4x dvd writer
I ran Nero 6 and it would not burn at 4x with my files on the hdd...speed appeared to be 2.4x(the burn % was at 60 % or so) ..after 15 min of burning I stupidly checked my joystick software and got BSOD and computer rebooted ...the movie I was burning from iso was 4.3 gb...the dvd said it had all 4.3 gb it would run off the writer but not a home dvd player or ltd 163..so it burned all the disc except I guess the lead out correctly in "normal 4x" time frame I guess ...but the software was going to continue for another 5-7 min and not finish the disc
this AM I used dvd decrypter to burn the iso..burned fine with same setup in 14 min or so....
I am having big trouble with Nero 6 and burn speed now ..prior to clean install at 4x writing off my hdd the read buffer would drop and I would see justlink kick and 4x burn would take 20 min...happened with cd writing as well....
I even changed the cache size in preferences from 16mg(default to 150-250 mg) with same issues
Is anyone else having problems with write speed and buffer problems with Nero 6 or is it just me..I knew when I installed Nero 6 last night I should not have and stuck with Nero 5.5 which about 2 weeks ago was working perfectly...damn
Motto...If it aint broke do not fix it....I have been tinkering less and less with firmware and stuff wish I had stuck with this motto
So far I am finding Nero 6 to be a piece of crap on my system...I only hope I can uninstall it completely and place Nero 5.5 back on with a hitch
Any ideas or thoughts...I have really got to like Nero for mastering and stuff but there seems to be alot issue with Nero 6
