I'm new to this forum, I have recently bought a Mad Dog 16x external dvd burner. When I check the driver speed using Nero, it shows up as .72X consistantly for all dvds(I have so far used only movies though).
I have no problems with the drive other than it being too slow. Replaced it and got a new mad dog drive, same issue. Tried it with I/O magic 16x external drive, still getting the same speed. My internal DVD drive is being read at 3X, the correct speed, the problem is with external drive.
I guess something is wrong with my laptop, Here is the config of my laptop.
Dell c640, intel mobile p4, 1GB Ram, 2.4 ghz, 38 GB hard disk, currently 8 gb free space, with windows 2000 advanced server running on it.
I'm using DMA transfer mode for both the controllers.
