I'm still a newbie and trying to figure this out:
I have a 1620 (B7T9 with speed hack) from Newegg, and when I run the Cd-DVD speed tests, it seems to read smoothly to 15, then jitters. My computer can't burn above 13.8x. The burst rate is 23mbs.
I'm running a P4 3.2HT, with 1 gig of Dual Channel Ram. The HD's are on one IDE (running DMA5) and the Secondary BenQ/Liteon (running DMA2)
What does it mean? The computer should be fast enough to burn at 16x?
