I have a Lite On 52x32x52 in a P3-800 (MSI board with Via chipset) with 128 meg of ram on Win98se OS. UDMA are “enable” eveywhere. CDRW is Master on the secondary IDE with the a LG 52x drive as a slave. The hard drive is Master (and alone) on the primary controller.
After the buffering process is done, it starts burning but its like the buffer cant refill himself while burning ! As soon as the buffer is empty , the burner has to wait until the buffer goes up to 100% then it starts burning again. It does that until the end of the burning process.
So a 700Mb CDR takes me 9:00 to burn. All the data are local on the hard drive.
That Lite On burner works very well in my Athlon 2000 btw…
Anyone knows why ?
