Hi There!

Frist time poster,how’s it all goin? Anyways, now… To my CD-Burner :a . I have a 32x10x40 Generic burner. (well, there is a company, I just forgot it) anyways. For some odd reason, it only burns at 16X. STOP! I know you are going to ask, “Didja buy 16x Cd’s?”. No, they are 48X CD-R’s. Now, someone posted all about DMA’s and stuff in another fourms board. Here is the lay-down though, When I formatted it fixed the problem (Oh,quickly, There is no update for the Firmware and my company is BenQ. It’s just a CDRW drive,not the combo) anyways, another problem is that the auto-run is not working even though it’s enabled on my windows. I have Windows 98, if this helps. Any ideas?

Firstly, I would hardly call BenQ no-name.

Secondly, did you enable DMA?


#3

To add to Chriso statement, check DMA if enabled in both BIOS and Windows, sometimes windows will keep defaulting to BIOS settings for things like this.

Take a look here, as your IDE drivers could be responsible for these problems!


#5

Benq does have firmware upgrades, just not too often Double check you’re running the latest.

I just cheaked the Firmware last night. DMA IS enable in both CMOS and Windows… I reinstalled Nero. Still nothing… Maybe it’s the fact I had Achole 120?
