I’ve a problem while recording DVDs on my NEC NG-3500A at 16x. I’m using good media from TDK and this issue is not connected to DVD recorder, but to my Nero 22.214.171.124. My PC is quite good so it shouldn’t have any problems with performance, my IDE channels’ settings are fine too - UDMA 5 for my Seagate Barracuda and UDMA 2 for both CD-RW and DVD-RW. The problem looks like this: when I burn DVDs at 16x, Nero’s “so exclusive” UltraBuffer is jumping all the time - not my DVD recorder’s buffer, but the “topmost big progressbar” which stands for Nero’s own buffer! I’ve tried quitting other applications and setting the highest priority to Nero - some luck, but not the whole solution. I have “Automatic” option set on UltraBuffer’s tab in Nero preferences, and it sets UltraBuffer size to 71 Mb. Maybe the problem could be reduced by changing this value? Actually I don’t understand what do I need this UltraBuffer for when I burn data from my HDD, since it’s just another copy cycle which takes time, but since it couldn’t be disabled, I have to search for optimal value for this option. I’ve 512 Mb RAM (DDR 3200) - what size should I use for UltraBuffer? Maybe 1 Mb? Or all 80 Mb? Do you have any experience on this topic?
Hope to find an answer here :). Thanks in advance for your attention to my trouble!
