CD-RW not burning at full speed
    #4228761 - 05/28/05 01:52 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Something is wrong with my cd burner, the NEC-7800A 16x CD-RW. It used to burn at 16x, but nero's infotool says it can only burn at 8x. its painstaking to burn cd's now. I tried to roll back the firmware, but it won't do it because its not the right version. Is there a way to override the settings to make it burn at 16x again? I have the memorex 52x multispeed cd-r media. I've tried a few types of media, but it happened recently. I can't think of any programs that I installed or did anything to change the drive.

weird, the only time I've ever had such an error is when I get the wrong discs

I'm using memorex 52x and it will only burn at 8x under nero. I had to make a bootable winxp cd using BCD(http://www.nu2.nu/bootcd/#wxp), and it burned the memorex media at 16x. I'm stumped. I've physically uninstalled the drive and also did it in the task manager.

If you're running Windows XP:

Right click your CDRW in My Computer and go to properties. Click on the recording tab and at the bottom, select the speed you want your burner to run at. Simple as that. :-)

DMA is enabled, I have the latest firmware, it says the drive can burn at 8x max under properties, but I set it to fastest.

Check videohelp.com and look up your burner. See if any others have had same issue.

I had a dvd burner back a year or 2 ago that was 2x yet i could only make it got 1x then one day i reinstalled xp and it worked again. go figure.

If it's actually a 16x (make sure it is) and in the properties of the drive it says 8x as the highest (excluding 'fastest') then you might want to try reinstalling the drivers. It could simply just be a driver problem.

its just a cd burner, not a dvd burner.

like most drives, there are no drivers.

Incorrect. All drives require drivers. Drivers are what helps the software communicate with the hardware. Without drivers, your drive wouldn't work on your OS.

It's true, you need drivers for your CD-RW =, they are already installed though.

ok, let me rephrase, there are no downloadable drivers. winxp sets it up automatically.
