I have this problem where my CD-RW churns out 700MB CD-R's in 6-7 minutes when I select it to burn at 52x. At this rate, my old 8x burner can compete with 3 minutes difference.
I typically burn .bin and .cue (cuesheet tells Nero to burn the .bin file).
I read somewhere that DMA needs to be on to utilize the full potential of this drive, but I don't know how. Help...
As well, when using Nero 6 Ultra Edition, the buffer for the recorder occasionally dips from 90-99% to approx 50% and jumps back to 90-99%. Is this affected by something that I can change too??
