I have an external DVD/CD burner combo hooked up to my computer. To my knowledge, it has never worked right. Right now I’m on downtime for work, so I have time to fix it after dealing with it for our busy time for the past 10 months.
Simply put, it burns too slow.
The device manager reads it as: ATAPI DVD DC 8x16x8 USB Device
I think the actual brand of it is I/O Magic with a product ID of IDVD16DLSE
Basically, it burns in between 3x and 4x everytime. There’s no getting around it. I got a tip to check the primary and secondary IDE channels. The secondary IDE channel was set to PIO, so I uninstalled that and changed it to DMA. They’re both currently DMA. I don’t think it’s a media problem, as we’ve always used Sony 48x CDs for burning.
Someone please point me in the right direction, thanks.
