I have always had speed issues with this burner. Today I tested the speed with Nero CD-DVD speed and I could not even finish the test as it was going to take over an hour. It got about halfway finished with an avg speed of 0.96X.
Also, even though it takes a long time, I have still managed to burn a good amount of discs and about 1 out of 3 will not play in any of my players. I have been using Taiyo Yuden DVD-R’s. And the main player that i use is a LiteOn LVW-5115ghc+.
Firmware update? Bad burner?
