Hello all:

I have the 8x8 2510A with firmware version 2.16. Everytime I burn with alcohol or nero my CPU usage skyrockets to 100%. It makes my computer unusable while I burn and it also burns at about 2x on a 4x disc. I'm guessing that the speed may be because the media (HP dvd+r 4x) is not compatible with my drive. But the most annoying is that the CPU usage problem..

Any ideas?

Thanks, Dima

Do you have DMA enabled?

What do I do if that drive is on a "WinXP Promise Ultra100 TX2 (tm) IDE Controller" Card.

How do I fix it then?

Thanks much, Dima

I have 5 controller cards in one of my PC's with currently 8 DVD burners and 4 DVD-ROM drives and generally the controller cards select the DMA mode at boot up so it should not be a problem. I did find however that if I used 40way IDE cables instead of the 80way UDMA cables my system was considerably slower and in fact took ages to boot up. It seemed that although UDMA2 ATA33 should work OK with 40 way cables it was in fact slowing down my system. I make sure now that I only use 80 way IDE cables for all my IDE, I use the flat cables because you cannot see the quality of the round cables and I have seen reports of them not being up to speed.

Yes I have experience the same with a controller I had. A 80pin cable is recommented but also make sure to install the latest drives for your controller. When I bought my controller there were four new versions changing and improving many things.

By the way can you flash your NEC installed on the controller?

My controller card has the latest drivers and I'm using an 80 pin cable.

It is also possible to be the motherboard.
