I recently got an LG GSA-4163b dvd writer. It’s the first dvd burner i’ve had. I havn’t really tried evrything, i’ve only tried burning dvds. It burns fine, but i think it’s burning slower than it should be. i’ve been reading various forums and from what i’ve read it shouldn’t be burning this slowly, unless i’ve been interpreting the information wrong.
I have a feeling my question has been asked before but i can’t seem to find any answers that can help me.
how do i check which firmware version i have? i’ve been reading that you can change the dma level, where do i go to find those settings?
I’ve been using 8x dvd-r and burning at the 8x speed and each dvd i’ve burned has taken approximately 45min. is that suppose to be the length of time it takes to burn a single dvd? if not how can i make it faster? i have two drives. the dvd writer i’ve placed on CS because for some reason when i place it on master, xp doesn’t detect the dvd writer. my second drive which is a cd-writer i have placed as slave. i’ve gone into bios and i’ve made sure that udma is enabled.
thanks for the help.
