HELP PLEASE....recently purchased the Asus DRW-1608P2...my problem is this....i can burn DVD's from an image at full speed, buffer right to the top....data cdr and dvd, same again, at full speed, buffer right to the top...my problems start when i try to do audio to cdr. Whether i burn at 4x, 10x, 16x or greater the cd takes at least 20 mins to burn...the buffer goes no higher than 9%. When the burning starts, time remaining will say perhaps 4 mins however when this as counted down to zero the burn process is only at 28%...of the finished cd's a large nunber of them jump.:mad:
I have had this drive as secondary slave/master, primary slave....reinstalled xp.....upgraded the firmware of the drive, the PC processor....the lot

I am using Nero7 Premium.

Forgot to say i have tried 4 different types of media....all of which i have used for a long while with perfect results

AJ, are you copying disc to disc? If so try copy to hdd first and see what happens. If you source CD is on a different bus to the burner then that can give you problems. IE, burner as slave on IDE1 & Source CD on IDE 2. I'd always recommend having the burner as slave with the source drive as the master on the same ide channel.
Try doing a copy from disc, using the burner as the source, copy to hdd, then copy back to burner as copy..
Let us know how that goes..?? PS, use an RW disc to save making any more coasters:)

Have fun

Thanks for the speedy suggestions....not copying disk to disk, mostly im trying to make an audio cd from mp3 stored on my SATA drive...have tried doing it with mp3 files from my master HD (ide) with the same results. Its also the same if i image the audio tracks first and then attempt to burn...its just the audio, DVD vob's and images burn fine.

Cheers
