1.25 Gig 266DDR ram
Windows XP Pro (sp1)
Recently Upgraded(?) from an ECS Mobo and having trouble with buffer transfer speeds only when writing to CDs. The ECS was no bother, with transfer speeds anywhere up to 115x(!, but now with the Gigabyte I rarely see transfer speeds above 4000Kb/s (roughly 26.7x) limiting CD writing to 20x. I was warned about Gigabyte boards before but ignored the warnings and went ahead and purchased.
I've seen this problem mentioned on many forums but never any solutions (I was told that sp1 would solve my problem but it still exists).
The drive is set up correctly in Device Manager, all the latest firmwares have been downloaded and installed, along with all the latest drivers and software ( Nero6, though Nero5 has the same problems so I don't think it's a software issue).
A clean install of Windows does not solve this, not even Windows 98SE. oh, and the latest ASPI is installed.
CAN SOMEONE HELP ME BEFORE I RECYCLE MY BABY AGAIN!!!
