Hi, here are my computers specs:
250mb serial ata HD
Benq 1655 burner
My problem is that even though my pc is pretty quick, I cannot burn above 16 or 20x. I am using a Benq 1655 drive with the latest firmware (BCGB) and memorex CD-R media rated to 52x. The software I am using is Nero 7. What happens is when I try to burn at a fast speed, it starts with the lead in, gets to about 6% and then the progress bar goes no further. The time keeps going up and the drive light keeps flashing, and eventually it will start to freeze the computer every 30 seconds or so for about 10 seconds. After a while it will error out with a write error.
