I recently received my LG GGC-H20L drive and installed it on one of the nForce4 sata connections of my Asus A8N-SLI Premium Motherboard. Windows booted fine and recognised the drive without any problems.
I have successfully been able to burn a DVD 8x and both a BD-RE 2x and a BD-R 2x so far, but the Blu-Ray discs took ages. I burned both the DVD and BD-RE using CD-DVD speed and the results I got are as follows:
That looks fine but when I burned the BD-RE I got this:
As you can see it took 94 minutes to fill the disc at an average of less than 1x speed. This seems really slow to me and I was wondering if this is normal or has something to do with the Nvidia Chipset the drive is on? I know that some nforce chipsets have given people problems so I would just like to confirm that this may be it.
Just in case it helps heres the Benchmark test for the disc:
I know the drive can only support reading back BD-RE at 2x but I though I would post this in case it has any useful info.
I have also burnt 23083MB to a regular Sony BD-R 2x using nero and it took a 102 minutes to fill the disc at an average speed of 3,905kb/s. This again seems too slow despite successfully recording all the data. It verifed the data after burning at a much faster speed of 3.8x up to 5.7x.
This is what the CD-DVD benchmark test of the burned disc looks like:
I would appreciate any advice or help that anyone may be able to give me as I am really keen on resolving any issues.
