Sorry if this has been discussed before but i have searched the forums and couldn’t find anything.
Bascially in the past day nero has been acting wierd as hell. I have a ltr-48246s which was running with 52246s firmware. I noticed that nero was having a hardtime reading my source files causing burn-proof to kick in or the burns to basically mess up. At first i thought it was cause the paritition my source files were on was heavily fragmented. But then i moved the files to an empty paritition and was still having problems. I then tried using nero’s determine maxium speed and simulate options. But for some reason they would be greyed out at any right speeds greater then 4x. So i reflashed my burner back to ltr-48246s latest firmware. Now i can run the tests but the determine maxium speed my source drive can’t go faster then 24x. I have burned tonnes of stuff with my system and i know that my drives can go up to max speeds. In fact only 3 days ago i was burning some stuff at full speed. This is an extremely aggrivating problem as i have a lot of stuff i need to burn off.

I am using the Nvidia nforce2 ATA drivers from the nforce2 3.13 unified drivers, but have never had a problem with them as i said above only 3 days ago i was burning a full speed not a thing has changed in my setup(execpt for going back a forth between 48x and 52x firmware).I am using media from the very same spindle though i don’t thinks its a media problem.
Thanks for listening (BTW generally thanks to all the cdfreaks peeps have found your forums to very useful)
