yesterday all of sudden my burner started burning cds and dvds extremely slow. my record time has doubled on both cds and dvds. if anyone has any ideas on how to remedy this i'd really appreciate it.
Check your dma settings.
Correct, most likely DMA is disabled.
It's still alive after all these years?, i still have one it's in a HTPC now, your def running in PIO mode there dude.
i appreciate the answers from everyone and i enabled DMA like you guys suggested. however that didn't remedy my problem and if that was my only option then i guess it's time to snatch a new burner.
Just replace the IDE cable or try the burner in another computer...
