AS stated in the title, I am having a problem with burning CDs. My drive burns up to 24x and when I do not have any media in the drive, it states 24x in Nero (6 and 7). When I put in a blank CD, it only lists 8x in Nero and under properties in WinXP. It used to burn at 24x and one day it seemed like it just started to burn at 8x only. I have reinstalled WinXP and it is still the same. This drive is stock.
I have already checked out all the other threads concerning DMA and PIO as well as checked the registry. My BIOS does not state DMA or PIO but only Auto or Off.
I have tried Imation and TDK disks that are rated for 1-52x.
I appreciate any help that I can get. Thanks…
I am running WinXP and here is a screenshot of with the CD in and with the CD out in that order:
