Ahead Nero 7 Wont Burn At 16x

Recommended Posts

hey all, i have a sony dru-701a with the latest firmware version. For some reason nero wont let me burn to memorex dvd-r at 16X. but only at 8X. the discs are 16X compatible and so is the drive. Am i missing a plugin for nero or something? because i dont see the option to burn at 16X all i see is 8X and below.

nero will burn at the highest rate that the computer can handle, for example my burner will accept 12x but the highest I have ever gotten it to go was 8x. it all depends on the cache, the ram, and the pipeline for the CPU

Well i have a celeron 2.4GHZ with 648MB of memory. I know it aint the fastest ever but i would think it would be able to handle it since i terminate all unneccesary processes.

do you know what your pipline burst is on the motherboard??

I know my pipeline on my gigabyte Mobo is a 512k cache, with 333 MHz FSB.

If you don't know, check your mobo specs in the manual or run a program like Everest or Aida32

What i dont understand is why i dont see no warning message or something of that nature on the product saying that burning at 16X is dependable on the computer specs?

first off because no one questions the speed, they are generally happy that it works ;)

you have 128k cach with 267MHz fsb.

This can be changed to 400fsb with proper overclocking, however you risk burning your processor up. Intel chipsets are not properly designed for Overclocking. Thats why most gaming machines have AMD chipsets, they overclock easily without high risk for damage to the CPU.

I dont think i will be overclocking since i dont think that its worth the risk. the only reason why i brought it up was because i thought there was something wrong with the dvd burner since it wouldnt burn at 16X. and i had no idea that computer specs can determine how well a drive can perform. but thank you for all your help fellow besttechie!
