When I first got my DVR-110D and burned a dvd it burn quick at 8x. Then I burned another DVD and it took over half an hour to burn at 8x. Just now I tried to burn a DVD ISO at 8x with alcohol 120% and it only went to 1.2x max, heres a screenshot…
You need to use an 80 conductor 40 pin cable. The drive should then be in UDMA mode 4.
Good advice given. The high CPU figure is another clue that DMA is not enabled & PIO mode is in operation.
I have DMA mode enabled, its on UDMA 2. How do I make it UDMA 4?
i currently also have my drives set up w/ UDMA 2, and it is still possible for me to burn @ 16x speed (about 23Mb/s). also, as for the cable, a 40wire cable should be fine as it allows for data transfer of up to 33Mb/s IIFC.
So what could the problem be?
Enable DMA on the source drive.
I tried but it goes back to PIO
YOU NEED A 80 CONDUCTOR 40 PIN CABLE TO BE IN UDMA MODE 4.
so the 80 CONDUCTOR 40 PIN CABLE should fix my problem?
A 40 pin cable gives you UDMA-2…
A 80 pin cable gives you UDMA-4…
Delete IDE Controllers in System manager. Reboot and Windows should recognize your harddisc and optical drives correct.
Your harddisc and optical drives must be in UDMA mode for highspeed burning.
A 40 pin/40 wire cable support UDMA 2 and are sufficient for optical devices.
You only need 40 pin/80 wire cable if your device support higher DMA mode’s.
I can’t becuase the hard drive on that channel has my operating system.
W00t?! Where is the problem…
I read somewhere in a thread that you should not uninstall a channel that has the operating system hard drive on it.
