Today I-ve FORMAT c: and reinstalled WinXP Pro first in NTFS and later, reFORMAT and installed in FAT32. Ive only installed Gforce drivers and Alcohol )to know in every moment the velocity of writting).
The result the same… max of 16x in writting and 24x in simulation.
Its curious because in WinME i can simulate to 40x with the same media… and also write at 40x.
Ive tried firmware of my Plextor from .01 to .04 and, of course, DMA is active and IDE of 80 pins.
Now I know that it isnt probem of conflict in writting software…
my hardware is:
Pentium III (0.18 um) With 256 KB On-Die L2 Cache (701MHz)
Motherboard AMRplus P6VAP-a+
RAM memory 327.152 KB
Creative SoundBlaster Audigy
Creative Gforce MMX440
Writer Secundary Master PLEXTOR CD-R PX-W4012A (1:0)
Reader Secundary Slave JLMS DVD-ROM LTD-166S (1:1)
HD Primary Master: ST340810A (40Gb at 7200rpm)
HD Primary Slave: ST320430A (20Gb)
(no floppy drive and sound integred in Motherboard off. Now i havent sound installed.)
thanx for the help.
After more tryings i have some more info…
Reading is done up to 40x
I’ve tried with Pextor media to “confirm” isn’t problem of media and:
I could simulate burning up to 40x in modes: DAO/SAO, RAW SAO and also RAW SAO+SUB.
Only with RAW DAO the mÃ x velocity is 24x (but some months ago I could…).
I know that 24x is maximum writting audio but data?
When I check “Turn of “Auto-select best write speed” if it’s possible”, simulation is at mÃ x velocity of 24x in all modes…
