I recently upgraded my pc to an Asus A8N-SLI Premium mobo, dual core 4200 processor, nicer gfx card. Everything appears to be ok except for the performance of my Sony DRU-810A DVD burner. It’s reading fine and at a sensible speed, but it refuses to write faster than X4 on X8 media. This is using both DVD Decrypter and the version of Nero that came with the drive.
It’s the same drive and same media that I was using on my old system, and I’ve done a completely fresh installation of windows. I’ve searched various forums to find the answer but no luck. I’ve upgraded the firmware to version e but that that didn’t work either.
Any suggestions that might help me sort this out would be greatly appreciated!
