I think there is something wrong - 12/31/2004 3:23:37 PM

Hi. I'm new here. I've been using a cd-rw drive for many years and I thought it was about time for me to upgrade to a dvdrw drive. So I bought a Nec ND-3500A from newegg. I am experiencing extreme slow speeds with the drive. Burning at 8x it takes 21 minutes! That cannot be correct because I am told that it is supposed to take about 8 minutes. What is wrong? I even upgraded my firmware to the latest 2.18 and this problem still persists. I am using Maxell 8x DVD+R discs and am burning data files. Please help! If I cannot fix this problem, maybe a format and reinstall of my OS would.

look here:

First, you need to set the registry key to allow you to see Nero's realtime speed:
For Nero 6 follow these steps:

Start-> Run-> type Regedit
Go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ahead\Nero - Burning Rom\Recorder"
Go to Edit-> New -> DWORD Value
Rename "New Value #1" to "ShowSingleRecorderSpeed"
Click on it and select "Modify"
Now set the value 0 to 1
The next time you burn, you will see the speed at which you actually burn. It should go from 4 > 6 > 8 sequentially.

Second - you need to find out which media you are using and what speeds it will burn. Download DVD Identifier from here
Put a blank DVD , run DVD Identifier and identify the manufacturer.

Third, DL NecDump from here . Run the program, click Open and load the firmware file you flashed with. Click on Write Speeds and search for the disk make you have. It will tell you what speeds are supported for that particular media.
