I have just bought a Samsung SH-W162C.
First I burned a Nortech DVD-R 8X media. The writer burned the media at 4X, although it was supposed to support up to 12x.
Then I burned a Diamond CD-R 52X media. The writer burned the media at 16X, although it was supposed to support up to 40X.
I have upgraded the firmware to T10.
I have also installed the Magic Speed software and set it to “High Speed Mode”.
I am using Nero 188.8.131.52.
DMA is enabled and it is currently using Ultra DMA Mode 2.
Why is my burner writing at slow speed? Is it because of the media I use or is there another problem?
Thanks a lot.
