Imgburn burning slow

i’ve been using imgburn for some time now im using now and i have my burn speed set to write at 4 but it only writes at 2 i’ve checked dma and its on. i have a liton DH-20ayp-08c. anyone have any problems

Might be that the combination of media and firmware doesn’t support speeds above 2x. DMA might still be in PIO mode even if Windows tells you it isn’t. Posting an ImgBurn log file would help. Old logs can be retrieved from the Help menu in the program.

I’d check your DMA in the BIOS. If still no good, uninstall the controllers and reboot.
