Am new to the forum so bare with me!!
Have just bought myself an NEC2500A and am well pleased with it appart from the fact that when I try to burn disc-disc @ 4x, the buffer runs out very quickly and drops the speed to 2x.
Burning disc-disc @ 2x the buffer is fine but what I really want is the benefit of 4x.
Thought it might be the HD so went and bought a new 160gig ATA133 with 8mb cache (mobo can take it). Still same problem happens!!
Machine has now since been completely formatted and all pached up with latest stuff etc etc…but can only get 2x when copying on the fly. Most frustrating when my mate can burn at 4x on the fly!!
I mean I don’t mind doing images but for speed… 4x disc-disc would be nice.
