Hey guys, here's my issue
I bought sony dru510 a while ago, burnt a few dvds and everything was pretty good. However, after a break of a couple of months, it can no longer record DVD+Rs at 4x speed, even though it reports 4x recording, it takes almost 30 min to finish one full DVD. My comp is pretty fast, P4 3ghz/1gb/300gb RAID0 with high throughput, and records very fast when I emulate the drive but not when I try to do it on the drive. I tried Nero 6.3 and 6.6, Ulead, but both are slow. Just a few months ago, same system, I was able to record DVDs in 16min 4x without a problem but now its very slow.
I don't remember, but I did update firmware this year sometime to the latest one 1.1a. the only other major change is the replacement of videcard and that's about it. My HD is fully defragged, and I did not make any significant changes to software (only a few games, and couple of minor progs).
Does anyone has any idea what might be causing this? I'd hate to go back on firmware, but it might be the only option so far. Thanks guys!
