New Sony DRU510A Extremely Slow

:bow: Help:
I have installed a new SONY DRU510 in my P4/Giga-Byte system and are having a problem with extremely slow burns to DVD. During the burns, the drive light just flashes for brief moments, probably about 5 seconds apart. It takes 30 minutes to burn even a small amount of data.

I have tried both DVD-RW and DVD+RW, with the same results. I have ensured my DVD Burner and Nero are all latest patches, as well as my Mobo BIOS. I have re-arranged drives to ensure that the Sony burner is in DMA mode (as per Infotool).

Below is details into my config. I have all of the Infotool data if anyone helping need it, just let me know and I can send the whole thing.

Thanks VERY much in advance! :bow: :bow: :bow:

  1. check to see if your burner has the l8est firmware. Check the Sony site for that & your burning app will give info on the firmware version.

  2. if you have the latest firmware & you’ve tried, as said, different brands of media & your system is running good in general, then you may have a bad unit… in that case, go back to where you bought it, bring your computer & ask them why it burns so slow.

  3. You can check with DVD speed (nero tools) to see how much CPU your unit uses when reading a media. If it uses a lot of CPU power then your unit is bad.

Firmware is current.
Nero is Current.
Speed tests ok.
Tried Memorex DVD+RW, Legacy DVD-RW and Ritek DVD-R
Burned CD-R without any issues.

Then I’d take your system back to the store where you got the Sony & have a polite chat with them. If you just got it, they should swap it out directly as D.O.A. (dead on arrival)… unless they can make it work properly.

Post a Nero log and I’ll take a look.

Attaching complete infotool dump, as requested.

No, I need the nero read/write log. You’re ASPI installation is corrupted. Why did you install Adaptec’s ASPI?

This problem was fixed by removing the DRIVE LETTER REASSIGNMENTS that were done to the individual CD/DVD drives (ie. X:, Y:, Z:)

Going to COMPUTER MANAGEMENT, Then STORAGE MANAGEMENT, right clicking on the CD/DVD drives and deleting the drive letter assignments, then removing the devices completely from the device manager, then envoking a scan for new devices.

Apparently, the reassignement must put a SHIM (probably the old MSDOS SUBST!) layer in the machine, which causes much I/O slowdown. Before, the NERO speed test told me my HDD’s could only support a 2X DVD burn, but after this change, it now reports a 15X DVD burn. I am now able to burn using the SONY DRU510A at full 4X for both DVD-R and DVD+RW (all tested so far) without any issues.

Much thanks also go to the FORCE ASPI product, for ease in removal and re-install of the ASPI layer.

For what it’s worth I also have confirmed my APEX AD-1500 was able to read a DVD Shrink ripped movie via both a DVD+RW (Memorex 4X) and a DVD-RW (Legacy 2X, but NERO reports it as 1X) without problems also.
