Unhappy Liteon External 40x burner [Sony; ; winXP]

sponsored links

Hi just bought the above burner but seem to be having trouble reaching maximum speed. The burner is hooked up to a usb 2.0 pcmcia card controller and data transfer from the burner is as fast as I would expect the only problem is when i burn a CD (80 mins) its taking up 11 minutes to burn the disc ( i would have thought 3-4 minutes would be more realistic). I have defragged the hard disk as a starter but no difference. The burner came with Nero and I have never ahd a problem with this software. What I have noticed is the record buffer level / state is up and down like an up and downy thing. I fluctuates from 98% right down to 12% and this is what I assume is making the burn process so long. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can speed things up, if its possible.

Probably not the problem, but is your media rated at 40x? My liteon 40x (internal ide) will slow down when it feels the media isn't up to task.
