I recently replaced an LG burner with this Pioneer.
Oddly no matter the program or media I use, it will only burn cds at 4x or 10x, and dvds at 4x.
I updated the firmware to 1.22. No luck resolving the problem. Raid is turned off on my board as some of the search results I found stated this could be a problem. I also checked to make sure the SATA controller was set to use IDE mode. I installed the latest drivers for my AMD 690G chipset. That never fixed it.
I am beginning to think this is just a waste of hardware space and I should replace it with something else. Anyone know why this could be happening? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
