I own an HP2006NX computer, that has XP running on it.
I bought a 20x burner and installed it. It came with Nero software.
At first, it worked well… and I was able to burn close to the maximum speed. But then it started having problems burning at full speed. In fact, it wouldn’t burn at “1x” speed. It actually burned lower then that.
I noted that when I ran Nero, the cache would empty out completely before the burner would move forward.
Naturally, I bought a new burner.
Once again, it worked for a while, but then it stopped burning at full speed.
I also noted that when I used HPs “DVDPlayer” (made by Cyberlink), the player would stutter, and ‘echo’. It wouldn’t play a DVD normal.
On my third burner, I paid close attention. Everything seemed to work fine until I tried to use the HP “DVDPlayer”. The player stuttered the video. From that point on, the burner would not play / burn at full speed.
Does this sound like a familiar problem to anyone… and if so, what is the solution?
If its just a software issue with the HP DVDPlayer, then why does by burner continue to have problems when I’m using Nero?
Along with being a pain in the ass, this has my curiousity peaked. Is this really shitty software? Poor design on the part of Windows? Poor design on the part of Cyberlink?
Finally, you should know that the burner is made by Samsung, its a SH223Q and its firmware has been updated.
Thanks, thanks, thanks…
