Erratic Buffer Level in Nero


I’ve recently purchased a Benq DW-1655 and am using it via an Akasa external housing by USB 2.0.

I’ve used other drives in this housing and had no problems with the buffer level, it alway stayed around 98 - 100% when burning a dvd but now when recording to Dvd the buffer level jumps around 73% - 89% and drops down to 13% every 40 seconds or so.

Is this something to be concerned about? My burns seem ok and don’t seem to produce any error.

Any info would be appreciated :clap:

Look in the Benq/Philips forum.

The 1650/55 have regular speed drops when burning which I think cause this buffer fluctuation.
