1. http://www.google.com/search?q=SPD3600 finds mention of media issues.
2. Given the items I read in number 1 I start to think that a story is needed. If it ever worked, if it's in warranty, if it works on another machine, etc.
Tell a little more.
Taking some good advice and starting my own thread....
My Philips SPD3600 is currently getting 0.70x on burns!!!
DMA is on, I have 2gig of ram and a Pentium M with 160ghz. Nothing points to an obvious problem (it IS plugged into a USB 2.0 and has the latest firmware). I've used CloneDVD, Nero, Alcohol, ShrinkDVD....you name it I've tried it. Slowness comes on a direct backup of a dvd, burning from the hd, data backup, software backup, EVERYTHING!
I was also told I need more details...but I don't know what else you need - please let me know!
It's pretty frustrating not even being able to burn at real time!! 1x would be good for now! Anyone have any advice? Am I missing something obvious? Anything would be great! Thanks in advance.
