I am having an issue with a newer dvd writer installed in a 1 year old HP Athlon 3500/1Gb RAM 25GHD.
It came with an HP with lightscribe, and the same thing happened to that writer.
I ripped and burned several discs with no problems using dvdshrink or anydvd, etc, and then burned with nero (bundled with current burner - Memorex MRX-510L).
I recently got a disc from the library that was a little scratched, and came up with many errors while ripping to the HD. I just cicked ignore all, and went away. The disc copied just fine, and played back fine once burned.
But, no matter what I do now, the writer will only write at 1x. It takes about 1hour and 1min to copy.
I am using Sony 8X media. The same media that burned at 8X a few days ago, is now burning at 1X only.
Any suggestions? Thanks,
