Long time lurker and first time poster. Thanks in advance for any help! My 3500 with the latest hacked firmware (2.18_QV3ME_RC and/or 2.28_QV3ME) slows way down (to 4.1x) at 2.5 gigs copied. This is on TUDEN000 T02 media made in Japan (50 spindle for 20 bucks @ BB).
Dell P4, 2.66g, 512megs, 2 120g HDs that are defragged, HDs are cable select DMA channel 1, NEC end of cable, DMA, channel 2 and Samsung DVD-ROM middle of cable, DMA, channel 2 (both cable select as well).
It's slowing using DVD Decrypter and NERO.
I was hoping to get a decent burn from some cheap disks, any ideas?
