Just bought for a friend the cheapest External writer I could find - Iomega 48x24x48 USB2.0 (see it on ebuyer.com)
Once installed it will not burn faster than 4x write 4x rewrite.
Before you say it, yes it is plugged into a USB 2.0 port.
So, which of the following might be causing the problem?
1- Software (currently using the pants bundled iomega hotburn program because Nero could not see the drive )
2- USB drivers - what can you tell me about these? Win 98SE plugs and plays USB2 PCI but are there better generic drivers out there?
3- Something else?
