I've got a Plextor 712A running as my secondary master on my computer. For some reason, the device buffer fluctuates when i burn a dvd image in both Nero and DVD Decrypter. I've narrowed down the error possibly to a driver issue, but i'm not sure exactly where to find the correct one or what to look for.
I've already ruled out all the possible causes: burner, media, dma, hard disk defragmentation. The reason i say that is because I've got a dual operating system set up on my computer. 2003 Server and Windows XP Pro. When i burn the disc (Fujifilm 8X +R) in XP using nero or decrypter, the buffer doesn't fluctuate and I'm able to burn at 12X with no problems (takes about 6 minutes total). However, when I'm in 2003 Server and I burn with Nero or Decrypter, same thing happens on both programs, the buffer fluctuates and the burn takes about 20 minutes.
I've got 4 separate hard drives on the computer and I've tried burns from each one with the same result. Burns fine on XP, buffer problems in 2003 Server. I was also able to burn at 12X on 2003 Server initially, but now its now working anymore. Must have been something I installed that switched the drivers or something, but I'm not sure when exactly it happened.
Has anyone ever had this problem before? TIA for any help/advice.
