i have a lite-on 52246s 52x When I first installed my burner, it was fine, I loved it. I knew that there was nothin better on
the market, I knew I’d bought the best burner on the market.
although in the beggining it was under a different operating system, then it was under win_me. butnow i have win98 installed and it will not burn at anything higher than 16x. i went into the device manager and tried too change the DMA settings and a unsupported hardware notice pops up informing me that making changes of this type may have undesirable effects on myhardware.
then the lite-on burner won’t accept the settings once i exit the window or restart the pc it’s back to the way it was before i changed it. when i run the nero CD speed test it starts out at 18x and then goes down to 15x, 14x,12x, 09x, 06x, 05x, and even sometimes down to 2x.
I’ve had buffer under run’s 50 times at least; it’s crazy. I’ve downloaded and installed the new firm ware Version R526S0C for my burner and nothing has changed didn’t help at all. I’ve down loaded the newest version of nero 220.127.116.11.B
nothing has changed, and i have the nero burner version 5.5.09.13 that came with the lite on burner i have. before i bought the burner i had gotten a version from a friend. version 18.104.22.168, although that could be the wrong version of the software on the disc it was copied for me. none the less it won’t burn at anything higher. does it have something too do with my version of windows? is there a patch i can find? is the a utility I can use to find out the problem? What can I do?
