I have just bought the LiteOn 812S 8X DVD writer from ebay.
I went to burn a 8X DVD with 4.2GB of data on and it took 45mins.
I thought this was slow so I ran the Nero CD-DVD speed test version 2.10.2 and it reported transfer speeds of about 1.86X or less
I also tried it with a 40X CD and it was reporting 11.8X.
I have tried with different brands of DVD, a 4X TDK DVD-RW and Bulkpaq Orange DVD-R with the same results
Does anyone think it could be faulty? my system should be fast enough to cope I would have thought:
Athlon XP 2600+ @ 2083Mhz
1GB DDR PC-3200
MSI K7N2 Delta L
Radeon 9500 > 9700
I used to have a Sony CRX230E CD writer and it wrote perfectly at maximum speed all the time
Any ideas would be really appreciated,
