When I copy cd's (writing to image first) the Recorder Buffer Level jumps around like crazy if I open anything (plus whatever I'm opening takes forever to open, whether it be IE or even just a text file). If I'm burning from an already made image file though, it's fine. I've tried rebooting, checked my DMA (set at UDMA 2), and checked to make sure the Buffer protection is on (it is).
This problem has only recently started since I reinstalled my OS. So my guess is it's the new firmware, or something went wrong witht he new OS installation. Hardware listed below:
PX-W4012TA (firmware 1.05)
WinXP (all updated and fresh install)
DVD Drive (on same IDE cable, set at UDMA 2) (never gave problems before though)
550 Watt Powersupply
Asus A7M266 mobo
That's all I can think of. If any more info is needed, just ask
