When I burn a disc in Nero, the buffer dances wildly, is this a problem?
A: NO, not normally, this happens with most new 16X DVD writers, on the NEC drive this is normally caused by the drives AOPC system recalibrating the optics and laser power as the burn progresses. This system is also used to grade media and determine if the burn should continue at a faster speed or slowed down to preserve burn quality.
Fuji 8x DVDR +R ( TY 02 )
burnt @ 12x and 16x
TDK flashed with Liggy's firmware
Normal IDE Flat Cables
HDD defragged and Writer connected at IDE master
I have read the FAQ above and the used buffer and the writer buffer really fluctuate quite a bit even I didn't multitask when I'm burning. Just wondering if it's really normal.
Used buffer would sometimes dropped to about 10% and same as for Writer Buffer but both doesn't occur at the same time. Occurences to burn a 4.4gb DVD would be say about 8x in total.
Burn is succesful though. Thanks a lot! Just need some assurance or shall I send it back for RMA?
