How would I adjust my Windows settings? I don't have any other programs running (except those that auto-run in the background) while I'm burning. I've watched to see how much CPU usage I'm using while burning and it rarely jumps above 60% or so. I have a 2.8ghz Celeron with 512MB memory. That's enough to burn properly, right?
I also have used Prodisc 8x media and it burns at the exact same rate as the Ritek 8x. While using CopytoDVD that's bundled with 1-Click DVD Copy, it starts the burn process at .55x and then jumps to 5.86 and never climbs above that. It shows that the average speed during the entire burn process is around 5x.
I've looked at other threads where people had similar slow problems and have tried everything that's been mentioned. One question though, I bought my computer new in May/04. I haven't made any driver updates or anything like that. The only upgrades I've made are the DVR-108 burner and I also installed a 80-wire IDE cable. Could it be that I need to update a driver or something? If so, could you give me a link or something to tell me how/where to download it?
And I only have 1 80GB HD.
Thanx again folks!
