Im pulling my hair out. SOmeone please please help.
AMD 2.x Ghz
Lite-On 1693s DL DVD Burner <-- Master on Sencondary IDE (alone)
My burn speeds are approx 1.x
I’ve updated the drive to latest official firware.
Tried sony and fujifilm DVDR media.
Tried burning Data from HDD to DVD using Nero / Cdburner Xp Pro 3
Takes approx 40 minutes + to burn a 4.x Data DVD at 8x
I’ve went as far as changing IDE cable and re-installing XP.
I’m going absolutely crazy. I’ve buirnt a couple of DVD’s before that went fine at 8x, approx burn time was around 8 minutes.
Speeds although indicated by burning program are 8x, seems more like i’m running at 1x.
Someone please help / point me in right direction before i throw this box off the secong floor balcony.
I’ve spent numerous hours trying to figure this out . doing test burns to no avail.
Do you think it might be a bad burner? i.e defective?
All help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
