I have a Pioneer DVR-212D SATA, the firmware for it is 1.24. I bought it just last week.
My motherboard it’s on is a MSI Neo P965 Conroe board, I’ve installed all the latest drivers I could find on their website.
I’ve noticed that burning Memorex DVD+Rs that can be burnt at 16x (My brothers samsung drive burns these at 16x) But my drive will go max 12x.
Using Nero with it’s infotool, it states that the max read for my drive is 8x and write is 12x. I had an LG that used to burn these discs at 16x, I bought a new one for the SATA mostly.
I can’t figure out why it won’t burn any fast. InfoTool shows max is 12x, Pioneer’s website gave me a pdf for write tests or something, showing this brand being able to write at 16x. I’m seriously stumped and confused.
Any help at all?
