Is it possible for a Burner's buffer to burn out or something of the sort?
It's the weirdest thing, i used to burn CDs perfectly without either the burner's or the read buffer hiccuping. It just went straight from the HD to the CD at 24x smoothly, without caching anything to the ram or using up anything more than 5-10% of the system resources.
For the last few days, every CD i tried burning ( same CD-R brand ) has had the burner using up all the avaiable resources and constantly hiccuping with the buffers, wich already resulted in a couple of coasters, even with buffer underrun protection enabled. The HDs are perfectly defragged and i haven't noticed any slowdown in them for anything else.
I'm using the same software as before ( Nero 6...), and haven't done anything to the hardware as of late.
Does anybody have an oppinion as to what may be causing this sudden spazzing from the burner?
Gives us a kiss precious.
