I have a DW1650, and I’m having the problem that it’s slowing burn speed down midway through most of my burns, even on certified media.
For example I tried burning Sony16D1 -r media today at 8x (media is rated at 16x), and at about the 1gb mark, the burner slowed to 4x. Scan results were okay.
I have some UME01 media rated at 8x. When attempting to burn at 8x, it actually slows media down to 2.4x, ending up with horrible scans. Even with top notch media such as MCC 004, it starts and finishes at 4x, when I told it to burn at 16x. This happens to a variety of different media that burns with excellent result at rated speeds in my other drives.
Any way to disable this? I have overspeed enabled, WOPC on, SB on.
