I am new to this forum and would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions that anyone could offer, thank you.
I recently purchased a new SATA LITE-ON DVDRW drive, model: LH-20A1L. I installed the drive and immediately noticed an extremely slow read/write rate. It took me 1hr and 1 min to burn a 3.5G data DVD O_0 (it burned at .9x)
I am running a Compaq Presario SR175ONX, Windows XP Professional (Service Pack 2) with ASUSTek Amberine M 1.03 Mobo. The HDD is SATA and operates perfectly.
I also noticed that I have no "recording tab" on the DVDRW drives properties, I checked that DMA was enabled (both in windows and Bios) and it is. I also updated the drive firmware to the latest version "BL05". The drive came with no drivers, simply Nero 7 essentials (which I did install).
I have no experience with Sata and Sata controllers. Any help with this situation would be greatly appreciated, and if anymore info is needed, please do ask. Thank you.
