Just bought this burner and upgraded my firmware to 1.04.
All DMA settings are ok I checked them.
When I tried to burn some data on Plextor 48x Media I got with the burner I noticed that when burning at about 25% of the burn the speed slowed down and finally it took 4:30 min to burn a 700 Mb CD. I also noticed that burner’s buffer went down to 7% b4 the slow down.
My first try was with Nero 22.214.171.124
Then I tried with alcohol 120% because it displays burning speed in real time. I noticed the cache was perfect but the speed was increasing till 30x then decreasing till the end of the burn (cache was always full though).
U bet I really thought the burner was out but I gave it a try with a verbatim 40x CDR and the burner burned it perfectly at max speed.
Did anyone encounter that kind of problem with Plextor Media ?
Did you also noticed with Nero a sudden shutdown of burner’s buffer cache to 7 % at the end of the burn process then buffer is back to 98 % ?
Thanks in advance
