Know how when you burn a disk in Nero, the read buffer is usually almost full (95%-99%)? Well, now, when I burn a disk (be it a CD or a DVD), the buffer drains itself constantly and refills itself back again (from 15% to 90%, back to 15% etc). As a result, the burning process takes more than twice the time.
I seem to vaguely remember that this problem is known, but haven't been able to find any quick answers, so I came to ask you guys (after all, what's a better place to ask about CD/DVD issues?)
Is it a hardware problem indicating that the drive might be dying? Could it be software/drivers? For what it's worth, on my other burner (LG GCC-4521B), everything is all right.
I've got the same problem with the same dvd recorder. I dont know what happens with it and I can't find the solution to this problem on the web. Anyone knows what can I do?
The only thing that comes to my mind is that perhaps is something about dust or dirty mechanisms.
Thanks for everything, LuKe
