slow data source? It can't really be.

Nero Burning ROM, Nero Express, NeroVision Express, Recode, InCD, etc..

slow data source? It can't really be.

Postby o770 on Sat Apr 19, 2003 2:30 pm

During the simulation process Nero slowed speed down from 52x to 24x and said the data source was too slow.
I was going to burn a bunch of .AVI files.

DMA is enabled and the hard disk is defragmented.
Why does that still happen?

Of course the trasfer rate from the hard disk is way higher than 24x on the CD-r... Did that ever happen to anyone?
This is Nero EXpress.

Thanks!

I assume you mean the speed test process and not the simulation process. Either way, if your hard drive and burner have DMA enabled properly, and your hard drive is defragmented, then just ignore the warning, skip the test, and burn your disc.

I just tried the speed test in Nero Express and Burning ROM (they use the same engine) on my computer, and got the same results you did. It complained that it could only write at 24x instead of 48x because the speed of the source data (my hard disc) is too slow. But I assure you that it is not, and that the compilation I tested can be written at 48x with absolutely no problems. I know because I burned this same compilation just a few hours ago.

This would appear to be either a bug in Nero or an excessively over-conservative testing strategy. For what it is worth, Nero took longer to run the speed test alone than it did to read and burn during the actual burning process.

Im new to this. I cant remember but that was the speed test then.

btw I just updgraded Nero Express to the latest version at the website, but I couldn't tell if this would happen only with this new version.

Thanks cfitz!

cfitz, do they use different engines for the actual burning??

Nope. They are exactly the same. There is only one executable. The serial number determines which interfaces are exposed to the user.
