I bought a Sony CRX230E 52x32x52 burner and it's supposed to "burn a full CD in under 2 minutes".
Problem is, it takes closer to 10 minutes. I've used 3 different brands of 48x media and tried burning audio & MP3 files with DMA enabled, buffer status is about 95% during the burning and still, 9-10 minutes!
I used Nero 6 and a coupla others but still makes no difference. It says it's burning at 40x so I figured it shouldn't take more than 3-4 minutes. WTF???
I have a CRX100E as the secondary master & the CRX230 as the secondary slave (although I don't think that should matter??).
One other interesting note: I used Nero's CD Speed 2000 to test the drive and the transfer test did the entire 700mbs in 3 minutes! The other six tests wouldn't work for me?? Emailed 'em about this but so far, no reply ....
I really baffled! Any ideas out there? Thanks Much !
