Pioneed 110D

Hello all, I just replaced a 106D with a 110D in a Dell 5100 box. The 106D would write 4x OK on Ritek G04/G05 disks. The 110D - whilst indicating (Nero 6) that it could write at 4x and 8x on this media - actually takes a lot longer. Almost 1 hour to write a disk!

During writing the disk activity light flashes on and off rather than being on constantly. I have flashed the drive to the latest firware which made no difference. The drive is operating un UDMA mode 5 on an 80 wire cable. The only other thing which ‘might’ not be so cool is that this drive and the Sony DVD rom/CDRW combi drive are both set to Cable Select on the same cable.

Has anyone seen this before?
Kind regards and HELP!

The drive CANNOT run in UDMA 5 mode! Max UDMA setting is UDMA 4.

Cable Select is a BAD IDEA.

OK, changed drives to Master/Slave config, now device manager shows UDMA mode 4 and burning is now happening at full speed - lights on all the time, thank you very much for you help, have a great day!
Kind regards

Nice it worked, surely CABLE SELECT created the issues.

Chef! Any good beers lately? LOL

Yup, I’ve collected the good ones here. You too?

PROST. SKOL. CHEERS. :clap: :pils: :cool:
