I have an SH-S182M DVD Writer installed on my PC with Win XP OS.
[li]The burner has the latest firmware version (SB06).[/li][li]The drive is working as master (I set manually the jumper pin).[/li][li]My BIOS hasn’t any DMA setting.[/li][li]Settings in Win XP (IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers): UDMA Supported: 2 (UDMA 33); DMA Supported: 2.[/li][li]I use an 80 wire UDMA IDE cable.[/li][li]My HDD is defragmented.[/li][li]I use Nero 126.96.36.199.[/li][li]I use Verbatim DVDs.[/li][/ol]My problem is that if I set the burning speed at 16x, the real speed is only in the range 0.9x - 1.7x, so burning a 4.4 GB DVD takes 57 min.!!!
My HDD has the following Win XP settings: UDMA Supported: 5 (UDMA 100); DMA Supported: 2.
Can anyone help with a piece of advice?
