Is my burner DEAd? i need answer ASAP

my burner now got some problem…when it write …i set at 32x it only write at 16 and the buffer is not stable. i a m using nero 5.5.9.10 . is my burner dying? cause to burn a cd normaly it took me 3 minit now 5 minit or more…or the version of nero got problem?

are you copying on the fly? or from an image file on your hdd?
maybe you have poor quality media.

I dont think your burner is dying. update nero and try different media

Well, I assume you just are getting used to this thought :

That’s approx. 2,5% of the drive’s reliability.

what firware is your drive using? if it’s not the latest update it.
Also did you try with a different brand of cdr when you tried the drive at your friends place.
