I can only burn things at around 1x speed. I have read most problems are related to the burner being set to PIO instead of DMA. I read Microsoft that setting something to DMA can make your system less stable and other bad things…
So how do I know if I can set it to DMA or not? I have a Dell D630 and burner is PBDS DVD±RW DS-8W1P.
If that is not a problem and I can set the DMA how do I know which one to set. I have 2 IDE primary channels, the first one is set to DMA with Ultra DMA mode 5, while the second one is set to PIO, should I change it to DMA, but will my laptop have any problems?
