I just built up a Dell 8400:
Sony d26 burner with Nero OEM software master on primary IDE port
Primary hard drive 160 SATA
Secondary HD 160 ATA 133 on Maxtor/Promise PCi controller
It takes over 10 minutes to burn a CD. SW says it is burning @ 40x 6000kb/sec. My old burner (a pioneer 105) would burn in half the time.
Is my problem software (Nero), firmware (more about this later), or do I have a drive problem?
Re:Firmware. Downloaded the Liteon upgrade (1673) - wouldn’t do the Sony drive. Decided to try the Omnipatcher to get rid of the Sony ID -downloaded a Zip file that wouldn’t unzip. Also downloaded a patched 1673 that wouldn’t do anything either (not valid archive?). Probably the .rar format which I don’t understand at all.
What is my best approach to this?
