I just got this new burner and it gave me trouble burning pass 1.6x I RMA’ed 2 brand new burner with the same problem (wont pass 1.6x). I even reinstalled my OS thinking that it might fix the problem but it didn’t. is there anyone here had the same problem? Or what can I do to fix it?

Welcome:). The first step would be to Check your DMA. Also, make sure you have an 80-wire IDE cable connected to the drive.

I checked the DMA settings and its at Ultra DMA mode and as for the cable, did you mean 40pin cable (actually 39 coz one pin is not being used)?


#4

40 pin cable with 80-wire.

@ junior_otaru
The 80-wire cable is recommended, but not absolutely neccessary for burning at up to 8x…for above that, you may find it is needed. You can count the ridges/wires on your IDE ribbon to see if it an 80 or 40 wire. Since you have UDMA going, I think you may have a poor media problem. Can you post the media code for the media you are using?
