[qanda]This thread is about the Pioneer DVR-215D. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]hi, after installing the pioneer 215-D i try some burns, first started with a normal dvds 4 gbs and only for testing i try burning at 8x, but i realize that a normal 4 gb burn take allways 20 minutes burning even selecting 4x 8x 16x ... allways take 20 minutes to burn. i strange the fact and then try to burn a DL first started 2x and everything came good, buffer level, device buffer allways at 100% or 99%, then try burn a DL at 4x and 8X and different result, allways take 40 minutes to burn and the device buffer allways jumping and not stay stable, very strange.... the fact i came to conclusion is that I can only burn at 2x
this burner is a sata burner so i think that the dma problem doenst apply here but for confirmation i confirmed and DMA is ON in both hardrives
Already try burn with nero and imgburn and same thing happens, the device burn is allways jumping to 32% 24% 100% 29%, allways irregular, the levels stay regular only at burning 2x DL
The burn allways complete ok, at 2X... but never ocurred a error during a burn.
I dont know why but i think its a problem relation to to my motherboard and some incompatibility. my board is a Asus A7V600-X.
SO any ideas i can resolve this thing and finaly burn at the speed i choose?
thanks in advance, any screenshot or information u need just ask.
here it is a log from Imgburn trying to burn DL at 4X:
