I'm new here, first post, I hope this is the right place to put this, if not, apologies right now.
I'm having a problem burning. It takes absolutely ages. It hasn't always been like this. After looking around for a bit I found that the drive was set to "PIO" instead of UDMA, I changed that back to UDMA, it is now running as that, but burning an almost full DVD still takes over an hour (at 8x).
I've noticed that whilst it was burning (using Nero), the "Read Buffer" (I'm not sure if that's what it's indeed called because I'm on a German language system and Nero is in German too) would slowly slowly fill up with the "Buffer-Level" being full-ish, once that was done, the "Buffer-Level" would go down whilst the "Read Buffer" goes down again too. Repeat. Lots of times. It only seems to burn while the "Buffer Level" is going down.
A bit info on my system, I don't know what to look for, what would be important in this matter, I really hope someone here can help me. I'm running Windows XP Home SP2 on a 1.70 GHz Pentium 4 processor with 512 MB RAM.
Don't know what else to write right now, this is the problem basically.
I hope someone can help.
