all of the sudden my Plextor 230A CD writer needs up to 10 min to burn a CD. It supports 52x actually and it doesnÂ´t matter wich media I use - even Verbatim Pastel from Taiyo Yuden take ages.
I even reinstalled Nero 7 premium, not really expecting something to happen - but you never know.
Yes, IÂ´ve forgotten to mention, DMA is aktivated.
Use cd-dvd speed to create data disc and post result.
Nothing wrong with that data disc that I can see.
Ok, time to look at problems getting the data from your HDD to the drive.
I would suggest checking that DMA is on for your Hard Drives, using scandisc to check for errors and bad sectors (tick both boxes if running XP) and a defragmentation of the Hard drives.
I donÂ´t really know how to check that the DMA for the harddrives are aktivated, as they are sata.
Is scandisk available on XP - how can I find it?
Gonna defrag tonight - takes some time I guess.
Check harddisc as you checked burner.
There will probably be 2 primary and 2 secondary ide channel.
One off the primary will be sata.
on all of the IDE channels DMA is aktivated.
And Scandisk? Where can i find it?
