Pioneer 108 burning at 1x ...(and only 1x)

Postby kycrout on Mon Sep 06, 2004 6:15 am

Hi guys

I have searched around the forum to no avail .. hence the post

Basically I have popped my new Pioneer 108 into my machine at home (Motherboard A7N266-VM) and it only burns at 1x (50 odd minutes)

I have
* Upgraded firmware to 1.10
* Checked Secondary IDE channel set to DMA if available
* Using latest supported Nero software

When I try and burn it gives me the option of 12x but actually burns at 1x (grrrrr)

So I brought the drive into work and installed it on my work pc and it works perfectly !!!!

What am I missing - Any help really, really appreciated !!!

could be your motherboard chipset. try updating your chipset drivers or use microsoft drivers. you can read this thread from the pioneer forum at cdfreaks.com: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=104687

Are you using the 80 pin flat cables? This will make a HUGE difference. Most people have been using the standard 40 pin cables and that has caused significant problems.

Also upgrade the FW to 1.14

Hope this helps!
