Hi, I have had my Pioneer 107 for 2 months now and have updated the firmware as it has become available. I am now using the hacked .113 firmware.
My problem is that no matter what media I use, a full burn (4.3 gig) takes 22 minutes (burning only!!). I have tried everything from Datawrite Reds V2 & V3, Bulkpaq 4x, Ritek GO4 4x, Datawrite 4x, Datasafe 4x - all in DVD-R format - through to similar using DVD+R format. I can select a burn speed of 8x, 6x or 4x but the reality of it is that whilst Nero accepts these, the true burn speed appears to be 2.4x.
I am using Windows 98, Pentium 111, 600mhz, Nero 22.214.171.124, with DMA enabled on the burner.
Other users of the Pioneer 107 boast of at least being able to write 4x discs at 4x speed. Some boast of writing 4x discs at 8x speed. So why will my machine not burn at these speeds? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
