Nero cd/dvd speed shows:
1x - 10%
8x - 75%
Burst - 14MB/s
Which is about 10% higher than normal from what I gather and precludes burning faster than 8x :Z
I've tried; putting drive on primary IDE, new cables (80 conductor of course), diff. brands of disks, removing antivir and other things... (Task mgr shows 0-1% util - until burning/testing starts.)
DMA is enabled - shows "Multi-word DMA Mode 2" instead of Ultra-DMA. Forcing PIO results in CPU utilization of 1x @ 64% and burst rate @ 2MB/s so DMA is working.
System is Gigabyte GA-7DX Athlon 1.2Ghz w/ 768MB,
Benq 1620 flashed to B7P9 as secondary master.
Hoping someone has an answer so I can use my Benqy at it's full potential.
