Why buffer goes from 5 to 98 percent ?
Not yet bad burnings.
Is it buffer on Pioneer 107D almost dead ?

Poor transfer speed to your drive due to restrictions in hardware or high CPU usage. It is unlikely to be a problem with the drive hardware itself. Check DMA of the burner and the hard drives.

Most times is DMA.

Also what about hardware acceleration?

It is a drive (Pioneer 107D) buffer, and only goes down and up when I'm burning DVD disks with big files (some MOVIE - means at all .AVI files, .VOB or .MPG and IMAGE files).

With CD-R everything OK.

You think it's about DMA transfer ?

IDE1 HD 80 Gb and DVD/RW Pioneer 107D
IDE2 DVD-ROM LG

Your DMA is disabled or enabled for this IDE channel?

Also, if I were you, I would set the burner on a different IDE than the HD.

Today goes on different IDE, together with LG DVD-ROM.

We shall see.

Try putting the drives in this order:

IDE1 - master = hard drive, slave = LG DVDrom

IDE2 - master = Pioneer 107D

This way you will have no data flow restrictions between hard drive and burner or DVDrom and burner.

Better is
HD on One
DVD-RW and DVD-ROM on second

Fast and slow shouldn't be together on same IDE.

Fast and slow shouldn't be together on same IDE.

Years ago when hard drives and optical drives worked in PIO modes where the CPU was used for all data transfer, the slower optical drives would slow the hard drive down, because the IDE port would only work at the speed of the slowest device.

It is a whole new ball game now. We have UDMA, where the CPU is not used for data transfer, so the IDE port can run at full speed for the hard drive at the same time as having a slower optical drive attached.

The result? It is quite OK to mix hard drives and optical drives on the same cable.
