Nec 3520 slow burning

vbimport

#1

i just bought a nec 3520a, downloaded the liggy firmware, am using velocity dvd+r’s booktype set to dvd-rom. Its in the primary channel and jumper is set to slave. I have burned a few things so far and everything has been incredably slow. For dvd shrink to analyze, encode and burn a dvd movie took 1 hour and 20 minutes, to burn a data disc using nero took 40 minutes. it says that it is burning at 12x, but im sure its not, the dvd’s are 8x. Both the writer and my other dvd-rom are both set on dma mode. Does anybody know why it is burning soooo slowly, can anyone help. I really appreciate it.


#2

You must set the Burner to master, then it wil work ok.


#3

no luck, i dont think thats it.


#4

can someone please help me??? anyone???


#5

Can you create a datadisc using Nero CD/DVD Speed and post a screencapture? That would give us with an idea of how the drive behaves during a burn.

BTW, what is the mediacode of the media you are using currently, and have you tried other media? (although this is of minor importacce, since extraction also takes ages).


#6

Here you go, im not sure if this is what you wanted but i inserted a data disc half full, i just burned into the drive opened nero cd dvd speed and hit start. This is what i got, and this is the info it gave me

#7

oh yea, i dont know what a media code is but i have tried different media and i still have the same problem


#8

Your CPU usage is way too high: 71% at 1X. Which cpu, motherboard, etc. do you have?


#9

Good observation TommyCP. :iagree:

And the burst rate is only 2MB/s which indicates some seriously problem with IDE-bus/-drivers.

webdk, download Nero CD/DVD Speed and Nero Info Tool from here. Fire up Info Tool, save result by clicking on diskette symbol at top. Post in

 wraps with your next post.

BTW webdk, reading dee-27´s FAQ at top of page (sticky) will also give you some answers to your problem.  :cool:

You should turn on DMA for your drive.

:wink:


#12

Oh my goodness, another good spot on DMA not turned on. I thought you said in earlier post that you have turned DMA on. I had similar slow reading speed with my older DVD burner, only read at maximum 2x when DMA turned off. :Z


#13

Doh! I overlooked the burst rate! :o

A classic example of a DVD burner operating in PIO. :slight_smile:


#14

i thought i had set it to dma initially but apparently not. Sorry, if im just missing something or not understanding but Im confused, i followed the instructions from the link you gave me. The dvd burner is connected at the end of the ide cable(i assume this is the primary ide Channel) and is above the dvd-rom which is connected to the middle part of the cable. Here is what it says in my device manager.

Primary
Device 0
transfer mode pulldown tab: dma if available
current transfer mode: Ultra Dma Mode 5.
Device 1
transfer mode pulldown tab: dma if available
current transfer mode: Not Applicable.

Secondary
Device 0
transfer mode pulldown tab: dma if available
current transfer mode: Ultra Dma Mode 2
Device 1
transfer mode pulldown tab: dma if available
current transfer mode: PIO Mode

I don’t know whatThe only thing that seems to say pio Mode is secondary channel device 1 and primary device 1 says not applicable. No matter what i do, these boxes do not change. Even if i toggle the setting like the instructions you gave me. I dont know what is going on. I really appreciate everyones help.


#15

OK, try to set your burner as Master drive in Secondary IDE Channel and DVD-ROM as Slave IDE Channel. If it work, maybe DMA of Slave IDE Channel turned off in system BIOS.


#16

Finally, problem solved. I did what you said and i just burned a full 4 gig data disc in less than 6 minutes at 12x. I want to thank everybody who gave their help especially tengtengvn who was able to come up with the solution. Thanks again.

Congratulation webdk. :smiley:

tnx very much, gwin.
