Nero write speeds ...

Ok, I spent $40 on the Nero serial thinking it was better then Ez Cd Creator. Ez Cd Creator has no problems burning a CD at 16x but Nero does for some un-godful reason! I have a Plextor 16x10x40 on a 1ghz Thunderbird running an MSI K7T Turbo w/576MB PC100/PC133 RAM. I don't think I could have any problems at burning at 16x with Nero if it would let me. I choose to have it write at 16x, but it does it's stupid tests and lowers the write speed. Hmmm uh I don't think it knows what it's doing other then pissing me off! Anyone have any ideas. I'm running the latest version (v. 5.5)

Thanks ...

  1. just turn off the test then it isn't really needed

  2. Yes, you can turn the test off. Nero is very configurable (as opposed to EZ CD Creator). It takes a little bit of getting used to (and sometimes solving bugs), but once you do, it's a great program.

  3. Nero disables BURN-proof for the drive when the testing is enabled, so ... yes, turn it off.

  4. Yeah, I'd have to call operator error on this one too. Nero has a bunch of options.

    Ezcd is nice when you first get your burner, and have never EVER read a single paragraph concerning the operation or design of a cd writer. Just like the help .chm files helped people for the first 4 months of Windows 95.
  5. Thanks for everyone else's help in this situation ...
