This is a strange one, and I really hope someone can help me on this.
I had a Samsung dvd burner which had worked fine for over an year. Recently the laser went and I purchased a PIONEER DVR 111D RW.
I did a straight forward swap from the Samsung burner to the Pioneer, and the problem is that the Pioneer will not burn at +4x speed. The maximum read & write I am achieving is x2.2. The old Samsung burner did 8x no problem, but with this Pioneer I am not achieving the speed at all.
I took the Pioneer back to computer shop and had it changed for another new one, but still have the same problem (having also now changed the cable to the new 80 pin)
I use Nero 6 and Dvd Decrypter to burn.
Why am I not achieving +4x speed with the new burner when the old one worked fine?
The Pioneer supports x16 burning no problem, and the disks I used burn easily a 8x, so why won’t it work for me?
Any help and advise will be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
