Slow burn speeds and DMA setting will not stay set

Pent 4 cpu
1gig Ram
new 18X LG light scribe burner(takes about an hour no matter what drive I use)
firmware updated.
tried all kinds of media
tried all kinds of rip/copy/burn software.

Tried all the fixes, but when I uninstall, reinstall drives,IDE’s, the output mode always goes right back to “PIO”.

Please help…taking over an hour with a fast machine and burner is ridiculous.

Could I possibly have my hardware set up wrong?? I have a DVD ROM and a LG burner.

Try with only LG connected as master (via jumpers) on the end connection on the IDE cable.

Try a burst rate test in Nero’s CD-DVD Speed as well.
