Burning with Nero 6 Ultra
I bought this drive yesterday and i've been unable to get it to burn a disk faster than 10 minutes. So far i've used multiple disks including: Fujitsu, CMC Mag, and Prodisc. On my other box my Pioneer dvr 108 i has no trouble burning these disks at 8X with burn times at a little over 7 minutes. This is a fresh install of XP (no aspi after install) and i updated the aspi layer first with the adaptec files then with the aspi file supplied by nero. I've had to use nero's aspi layer when making a bart ghost disk. When i burn from the NEC it always takes just over 10 minutes when burning at 8X from nero.
I've also flashed with TDB's latest for the drive and i can rip at fast speeds.
The system specs are kind of low, especially the vid card, but i don't think that's the problem. Anyone have any ideas?
