have add an Samsung Ts522u (16x16x8x...DVD-RW) to my dated but lovely PC :wink:
CPU- C2-566oc850 / MSI- 6199BX(2.0) / hyundai PC133SD 256+128MB running on 100FSB / a MX440SE / Seagate BarracudaIV 80GB(UDMA33/66/100) / a Tv Tuner / Yamaha 724 Audio
windows ME + XP Pro +Nero6 ? /DVD-RW running on Pio Transfer Mood/
the DVD-RW runs well at the very beginning, it could work with my 8xDVD-Rom(Blank-DVD-R) well, 4.4GB data could be burned within 7 min.....(at the speed of 8x).
While it suddenly speed down to 2x (yes 2x) this month (the Blank DVD_R is a 8x one, have try more than 5 pics).
My Nero CD/DVD Speed test shows the DVD_Writer would run the Disc at 8x/6x/4x/2x...... while the writer could not run above 2x at the CPU Usage test, the Burst Speed Test also showing the Writer could not excessed 4MB/s.... all of the above tests are running under WinXP, even i log onto the winME, the result is still disappointing.
Could the DVD_RW run with a UDMA mode with the BX mb?
What's the avg/max speed of PIO mode?
The writer cannot pass the 4x/8x CPU Usage Test, is it convince that
all the power of the CPU has been exhausted at the moment?
Could any one tell me, what is the avg/max speed of Pio Transfer Mode?
I know that a BX is too dated, while it could run a 8x for some disc b4....
will try to install the DVD_RW to another "speedy" pc for testing, but still want to get more info/advices on this stage...Tks in Advance :wink:
