Request help with CD and DVD drive speed


R

I have two drives, one is CD the other is DVD and CD, both are Memorex
drives. They are rated at 52x. The disks I am using to burn programs
on are CD-R rated at 52x. I use Nero burning Rom to encode and burn
Video files. They only burn at 4x. I have tried everything to get
them to burn at a higher rate, but I have had no success. I thought
that Roxio easy media creator 8 may be at fault, so I deleted it from
my system. Alas, that was not the problem, so I reinstalled it. Does
anyone have any idea how to correct this problem?
Thank you,
Bob K.

Check to make sure the drives are running in DMA mode and not PIO. MVP
Hans-Georg Michna has an explanation of this and a fix:
