I often read about the writing speed problems with the ND-3500 drives, and I figured out that we have to choose the right media.
In my case, I have the good media I think. NeroInfo is showing me that:
Manufacturer : Ricoh
Code : RICOHJPN R02
Disc Type : DVD+R
Usage : General
Recording Layer : -
Recording Speed : 4 X - 16 X
Capacity : 4.38 GB
Additional Capacity : -
Overburn Capacity : -
I'm using NERO 188.8.131.52 an the lastet firmware of Liggy And Dee's ND-3500 firmwares V2 Beta 3.
If I try to burn a DVD+R with 4,5 GB the drive need 15 minutes to burn it.
I really could not imagine why the drive speeds down shortly after start burning. When starting to burn the drive speeds up to 16X i thing because its very noisy. After this, it speeds down to 4X I think and then it burns the whole media with this speed. The Buffer is always on 98%, only 3times it goes down and up again.
Why in heaven this happens?
I got really good hardware and did not have any problems at any time.
Is it possible that my USB2.0 external case (Cypress Chipset), where the drive is attached to, is working to slow?
Any ideas would be great!
