I have Plex 40 write and it's been fine since i reinstalled my PC. Atfer doing so my buffer jumps up and down quite alot and when using nero it says buffer unrun avioded 123 times (before i reinstalled it used to say 1-3 times). i have have tried differnt ASPI drivers but still has not luck, becuase of this cd's are takes ages to burn. I have also run the CD on it's own IDE channel as i thought this may be the prob but still not look. Hope you ppl can help, thanks in advince for your advice

Do you have DMA enabled for that writer?

Yup, DMA. And Plexie 40's will only write at 24x in DAO write mode - well documented now, Plextor don't give two hoots about DAO

<A HREF="" target="_new">Yep</A> ;) 

I have some issue with the CD protection article, so I thought I'd make a few posts before complaining too loudly :p

You wouldn't be the first to complain about an article here.
