Got troubles with this drive since it pass onto Burn Proof mode (green light) very often when burning at high speed (12x +) and actually take a long time to burn compared at what speed it should burn...
Running an ATA100 drive under Win2k no SP (downloading SP2 right now)
any ideas ?
Read this article on CD Freaks mainpage. This should answer your questions: http://knowhow.cdfreaks.com/article.php?ID=116
This is what i was actually looking at, but didn't helped me out
that's why i'm hopelessly making a call to you CD fr34kz
i'm burning a 600-650 MB cd in about 11-13 mn... too darn long for a 16x burner...
What are your system specs? Maybe it's too slow (especially your harddisk) to provide 2400Kbp/s for the burner. Try to defragment it...
System specs ?

LMAO, that's really not about the low speed
i do defragment sometimes, but it doesn't seem to be that...
No that's ok... however I do see you have overclocked your CPU quite a bit (30%) which could be causing the problem. It doesn't have to cause the problem though but if I were you I would test it at it's normal speed of 1GHz... Let me know if it works!
i can get more than 1038 but in that case that's not stable..
it's very stable at 1308 so i don't think it's about overclock
to me even a 166 mhz puter can burn reasonablt fast, so i really not think cpu is in cause..
