DVD re writer poor performance
Posted 30 March 2005 - 12:01 AM
I have tried the playing DVD in my read only DVD drive and it is fine , I am using Cyberlink PowerDVD 5 which came bundled with the player it all runs through a USB, the company that supplied the equipment said it might be a compatability issue and renewed the rewriter drive just in case it was faulty.
I am running XP pro , 1.1 AMD athlon processor , 384mb cache.
hope you can help

So, my question to you is: How fast is your regular DVD player, and how fast is your DVD burner? Another thing to try is to take the DVD burner out of its houseing (voiding its warranty) and connecting it to a regular IDE cable.
But, it sounds to me that your dvd recorder just can't keep up. But, recording should be fine. If not, you may have a bad dvd burner...take it back and get a new one (Provided you didn't break the warranty by using the above method )

16 x read and 16 x write - (single layer)and 2.4x write (double layer) 4 x rewrite for DVD+RW/+Rand 48x (read) 32x write CDRW.
The spec of the caddy is as follows:-
Rate: USB2.0 (480Mbps) USB1.1 (12Mbps)
Interface: USB2.0 A,B
Cooling: internal fan
Hope this is enough info to diagnose the problem.

Do you thinks he is tellin' me porkies.
Is 12Mbps through the carrier too little to play DVDs?
and if so will it at least be enough to write and re write?
Thanks for your help

This should give you an idea of how fast the data transfer rate is between your burner and computer.
A dvd at 1x uses a transfer speed of 1.35mb per second. If your speed drops below this in testing I wouldn't recommend burning any DVD's.

Another user with this same drive, had problems playing brand new dvd movies in this player. But, burning worked just fine. They tried upgrading their video drivers, and now they can play movies. So, I suggest upgrading your video drivers and seeing what happens....
