I just put this drive in my system and It starts to burn at .02x and makes it up to 4x but will not go any higher. I have tried everything to get it to burn faster and by accident I found out how.
I was burning and it was at 4x when I opened spybot, when I started to scan the hard drive, the burn speed increased all the way up to 16x and stayed there until the second I stoped the scan, then it dropped back down to 4x. What is goning on? as long as I have some type of activity going on on the master hdd it will burn higher than 4x.
Everything is connected correctly, The hard drive is primary master on 1 with a dvd rom drive as slave and the burner is master on 2 with a data only hard drive as slave.
I am burning an iso with dvddecrypter on ty02 from master hdd on 1 to burner on 2.
All drives show udma enabled in win xp.
