Pioneer 212D Lower Writer Buffer

Postby fleshie on Fri May 11, 2007 6:14 pm

Everytime I burn a DVD-R, I noticed that the Write Buffer would always dip down to about 8% at the 13% burn progress mark and then I hear the drive spin down a bit. Then it would immediately spin back up to full burn speed, and the Writer Buffer would restore back to ~97%. Verifying the data afterwards, and scanning the discs with a LiteON burner, it appears to be a perfect burn still. Can someone possibly explain this to me and let me know whether this is normal behavior? Thanks a lot for any help.

What are you burning and what application are you burning with? I haven't noticed this with mine and I primarily use ImgBurn.

Does it do this once or repeatedly?

Someone told me it's normal when writing Z-CLV (?) that the buffer dips between the switching of the speeds... and looking at other ppl's buffer and speed graphs when creating discs, they seem to behave the same so I'm not really concerned anymore. Thanks for the help!
