If i burn at speeds higher that 8x the device buffer will start to drop after about 65% of burn is completed. Device buffer will drop to about 8% and then go back to 98% and it will go up and down for about 5sec. and then the burner will slow down and then complete. My dma is enabled. My os is xp pro sp2, 512mb of ram, pen3 1ghz fsb 100, 2wd120gig hd's. Software is DVD Decrypter (up to date), nero 22.214.171.124a, firmware for my 1673s is the latest ver 5. I use verbatim dvd+r 16x. 1673a drive is set to master.
Is whats happening here because of my system or a problem with my burner?
Thank You, sally
