My girlfriend just recently got HP DVD 1040i DVD Drive.


When she goes to burn a movie it sometimes only burns at .67x

However, it never reaches above 3-4x speed

What causes the slow burn? I use the same program as her and have no problems. and her DVD drive states it will copy much faster than .67x

Is it a hardware issue or something else?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Simple stuff first: Are you in DMA mode, or PIO? Did you use an 80 conductor cable to connect the drive to the MOBO? What brand of DVDs are you burning? Is the DVD burner on it's own channel?
