My New External Buslink 48X CD Burner still takes 18-20 minutes per CD...
Here is my story:
Sony Vaio Notebook (3 years old)
OS Windows XP Home ("Clean Install" in Jan)
6 gb HD w/ 2gb free space
Using an Adaptec USB2 (Dual) Adapter Card
Easy CD Creator 5 Platinum (w/new updates)
Basically... I select 40x (The highest offered)... The "Actual" Write speed hardly gets above 4x, 5x, or 6x .... it may jump up to 25x or 30x for a second or two... but stays at the lowers speeds for 99% of the burn... takes 18-20min for a full 80min cd...
I have checked w/companies and they say that both the USB2 card and the Burner are installed properly... I updated all my BIOS stuff when I moved up to XP from Win 98 (Clean Install)... Sony says no new BIOS needed...
IDEA's PLEASE... Thoughts on the subject.... Can this work or it is pointless.... This is sooo frustrating... Anything I can do to get faster burns????
