(Resolved) Nero not reading Correct drive speed?

Q: (Resolved) Nero not reading Correct drive speed?

I've had this problem in the past where Nero thinks my burner is a 12X and not a 24X. This was easily solved by a reboot. Now however even after the speed test it will only allow me to burn at 12X. I am using a Sony CRX175E.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I bought a second cd burner today and I want to be able to burn two things at once. I have a 12x Phillips and a 24X cheapie. does anyone know of a good how to site for this? Does anyone know if I will be forced to burn at 12x on both Or can I rig it to burn at 24x by opening another session or using another software altogether. Basically anything you guys have will be of great help.

When I copy mp3 files from a cd to a folder my drive goes very slow. I have nero tool kit item "drive speed." It looks like the picture I attached.

It says my drive is currently set to read at 15x. That's too slow. But I select the 40x faster speed but in the window I can see no way to actually put the new speed into effect.

And I've looked all over for "help topics" to explain this silly application and found none. What if I did not have any Nero software? How would a drive's speed be set then??

This is all quite baffeling.

Has anyone else noticed that Nero in Windows even the latest update when you are burning a disc has a problem detecting what has problems 7 Windows 9 detecting drive Nero speed? in speed the disc should use At first I thought it was a problem with my DVD burner in my laptop it was only allowing me to choose X speeds when my drive supports X speeds maximum Then I thought it was the media that I was Nero 9 in Windows 7 has problems detecting drive speed? using nope it's X media so it should support X speeds easily I've narrowed it down to two problems either Nero has a 'bug' in it when used with Windows and it isn't detecting the drive speed correctly now confirmed by using it's 'settings' options to see what it is detecting the maximum drive write speed as it's only listed as X or the drive isn't detecting that the media is X media this has been disproven now by taking the drive out of one computer and putting it in another and getting full speeds in Vista -bit with Nero 's latest update This is a severe problem and I was wondering if I should contact Nero and tell them about this or since Windows is still in the quot RC quot stage wait until the ACTUAL Windows comes out and then inform them of this issue

A:Nero 9 in Windows 7 has problems detecting drive speed?

I have great problems to burn DVD with Nero 9. I have just upgraded my PC from Vista 64 bit with the same problem.
Wheh I have selected what files to include, and press Burn nothing happens. I run 64 bits in Windows 7 and have no other problems.

First post here, hope someone can help. I am a little confused by my the readout on diskpart.

The attachment is the readout from my diskpart. It is a clean install of Windows 7. From what little I know it looks like the offset and size on partition 2 is wrong? Or at least under Size it says 1024KB and under Offset 111GB. Surely these should be the other way around? Anyone know what is happening here? Is the alignment on my SSD really 31KB and thus needs resetting? I thought W7 clean install would set this up for me?

Really hope someone can clear this up for me, I've been at this since the weekend, spent hours and hours reading and just not finding the answers I need!

Yours in hope!


A:Is SSD align is correct - odd reading in diskpart

Did win7 clean install do that... strange.
What is partition 2 btw... it's 1024KB large so 1MB... very small.
Partition is misaligned. Put it at the 1MB border.

This is a problem which has got gradually worse. Initially, the CD/RW drive was very slow in reading burned data, it would spin and spin until it finally read something. Then, especially with large files, it would read part of it and then give up with a reciprocity failure message. Now, it doesn't even see the disks at all! I also have a DVD drive and it's the same story there. It doesn't see the disk. However, the same CD's read without problem on other machines and I can still play CD-ROMS in either drive. These fire up immediately and play fine. I'm burning with Nero on a W2K machine. Is it the burning or the reading that's the problem, or both?

I have a new computer at work (XP Home edition S2). My back-ups are on CD RW's done by Nero or InC/Easy Write. I enstalled nero & Inc, but for some reason the CD/DVD does not read the back-ups. It says the CD is empty. This computer also has McFee AV on it. Does anyone know what would cause this?
On the other computers I get a message about Easy Write Reader, click on it & it downloads the reader... & then no problem. It is possible that I chose not to load it once, & have not been able to enable what I have loaded.

Up until yesterday I could copy to CDRW and DVDRW disks fine using Nero InCD, but this morning I find that InCD regards all disks as read-only, even if they are read-write! I've even reformatted a disk, but it still regards it as readonly. When I put a read-write disk in the cd-tray and close it, the disk is briefly recognised as read-write (as indicated by the ticked-icon in the system icon tray), but a couple of seconds later the icon changes to show a readonly disk. I have updated InCD from version to but this has made no difference. As far as I know I have not installed any new software onto the pc that could change InCD settings.

Backing-up data to rewritable CD and DVD disks is a very important part of my business, so any help would be appreciated.

BTW, I am using XP Pro, SP2.

I have a PIII 533 CPU and an ABIT VA6 Motherboard. When booting it says PIII 266 CPU. I've gone into the "soft menu setup" and tried to correct it but then the computer won't boot. I get the error message "CPU has change..unworkable.." I've done all I could think of including reformatting my HD and updating all drivers for my VIA chipset. I ran Intel's Processor Frequency Utility and it says I have a 533/100 but its running at 265/66. I've had this problem for so long!! Any help would be very much appreciated.

A:CPU speed not correct

Very strange...

Your problem is at the hardware level (no need to reformat your HD or anything).

Has this happened since you've gotten this mobo/CPU, or have you done a BIOS update? Check for updates? Upgraded the CPU recently?

Im somewhat familer with ABIT boards... there is usually a problem that causes the MOBo to go to a default mode.

You may have to contact ABIT directly on this one...

MSI KT4 Ultra Motherboard

Hi, with the above setup, the board is reporting that the processor is an XP 2200+ at 1.6Ghz. It should be a 2400+ at 2Ghz.

In the BIOS frequency controls the FSB is 133Mhz and the multiplier is set to Auto. According to my research it should be on 15.0 to make it 2Ghz so I have tried setting it to 15.0 but the motherboard will not boot with that setting and I have to clear the CMOS with the jumper to start over.

Has anyone seen this before or know what I can do?

So I just installed my 8350 about two days ago and I just found out that it isn't running to its full potential. It's running at 2812 MHz. when it should be running at at least 4k MHz. I tried running my game to see if it will go up and maybe its just idle to save power but that did not work. Then I went into my bios and turned off all my C-State (c1e, c6 are the only two I have). And that did not do the trick and I have ran into a brick wall. Please help me.

A:AMD 8350 Not getting correct speed

I have 3 possible solutions to the issue: 1) The CPU is flawed. 2) You are in a power saving Windows state. 3) Your CPU is running hot, which will throttle its speed to something lower.

In order to check whether your PC is in a power saving mode, go to the start menu and type in "power options". Choose the one listed under "control panel". Once you click it, it should bring up a window that tells you what power state you are in. Choose the "Balanced" plan if it is in power saving mode and see if that helps.

Secondly, download and run RealTemp and tell me what the CPU temperature is at idle and when gaming.

I have 3 x 2gb Corsair 1600mhz DDR3 ram sticks. I ran blackbox, and it tells me the memory is running at 533mhz? And if I read it correctly, it's underclocked by 20%??

Is this all wrong? And if so, how do I fix?

I did read this, but it didn't really explain things for me

It says effective speed is double core speed, which would make my effective speed 1066 if the frequency listed by black box were "core". But it's supposed to be 1600mhz

Corsairs C7D ram is advertised, and sold as 7:7:7:20. Black box reports it as 8:8:8:20?

If I recall correctly, LGA 1366 quad cores support a max of 1066 unless you overclock.

So I have 6GB of DDR3 RAM in my computer, and when I go into my BIOS, it says that they are operating at 1066 frequency, when they are 1333 sticks. I'm not sure how to solve this issue, but I think I know how it came about. I had a 2GB 1066 stick in there and for some reason when I took it out, the speed stuck in the BIOS.... any ideas how to correct this? I have tried: Flashing the BIOS. I think I might try to clear the CMOS THEN flash the BIOS, and hope that that works.

On the Memory tab it will show the current memory settings and the SPD tab will show what the auto settings are. The auto settings may not be 1333 but you can then change the values in the Bios to get what you want.

I put together a machine with an ASUS A7N8X-X MOBO and Athlon XP 2600 Barton (1900 GHZ and 333 FSB). With the auto settings in the Advanced Chipset Features, Everest reported it as 1.1 GHZ or something like that. So I changed the CPU External Frequency from 100 to 166 as the Frequency Multiplier had been set at 11.5. I assume that's correct because the manual says the FSB should be twice the CPU External Frequency, so twice 166 is 334 (close to 333 listed). This then gave me 1.921 GHz and a 334 Mhz effective FSB. See the snapshots of Everest readings:

I have a Dell Inspiron 8100 and it list the processor clock speed at 1000/733 mhz. The processor speed is currently at 733 mhz. Is there a setting that can be changed to achieve the full 1000mhz clock speed?
Any suggestions would be helpful.

A:Is Dell Inspiron 8100 processor speed correct?

Your Inspiron like many notebooks will throttle back your processor speed to reduce heat and prolong battery life. So even though it is a ~1Ghz processor it will at times run at 733MHz. That's normal behavior. You might be able to disable this feature in Control Panel/Power Options.

Hey all, I'm going absolutely nuts. I'm building a new system up for my mom and the parts she bought are fubar! The old board wouldn't format the HDD when I tried to install windows XP pro on it, though the hard drive did fine loading in my PC. Bought a new board and it won't POST. I had the Bus set to 233MHz which is what AMD lists as the frequency for the AthalonXP 2800+, but when I put the processor back in the old board to make sure I didn't fry the processor it read it's bus speed as 100MHz. I upped the speed to 233 on that board and it stopped posting. Do I have a bunk chip? If so, is the old board actually ok?

I'll post all the specs of the boards when I get back, but any 1st thoughts would be appreciated.

A:new board won't POST, Processor not running at correct speed

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

The correct front side bus speed for your athlon 2800+ cpu is 166mhz. By setting it to 233mhz this constitutes a massive overclock, and that is why your system wont post.

If you look at the cpu specs below you will see that the Athlon xp 2800+ has an fsb of 333mhz which is means it should be set to 166mhz. 166mhz X the multiplier of 12.5 = 2083mhz clock speed.

See HERE for athlon specs.

I had Nero Burning which came with my burner. It initially installed fine and operated flawlessly.

After my last format, the software begins to open but then hangs on the "Searching for SCSI/IDE drives" screen. I must use the reset button to reboot, as CTRL+ALT+DEL will give me only a BSOD at best.

I uninstalled it in safe mode.
Deleted all found registry keys.
Reinstalled it.
D/l'ed and installed update nero55107b.exe.

So far, I have had no luck. Unless I missed it, I didn't see any reference to this problem in the Nero FAQ page. I am running Win98se, IE6+SP1, no AV. I have Norton Systemworks 2002 but it, along with Nero and several items, have given me problems on installation.

Few months ago I bought new NEC recorder with Label Flash function and drive manufacturer gave me CD with nero7 essentials which supports LF (but this version unfortunately was incompatible with the newest version of windows). I've tried to install this version, but at the end of installation error message appeared. After that, I've download nero7 update from But when I've been trying to install it, installer was unpacking files, it asked me if I want to install nero toolbar (or something like that) and than it diapered forever. OK, I've deleted nero files from programfiles(x86)\nero (i'm using x64 version of vista) (i cannot unistall by installer, cause it was returning error msg) and I've cleaned win registry from nero files.

Hi, I have two Samsung SATA2 hard drives that are configured in raid 0, both drives are identical and are supposed to be 3 Gb/s in speed which translates into about 300 MB/s i think. using Passmark performance test it shows that the drive reads at 66 MB/s. i set the BIOS on my new giga-byte motherboard to raid and installed the raid drivers before installing the OS and everything is fine just concerned why its not showing at least closer to the 300 MB/s speed.

A:sata not reading at advertised speed

Never, ever believe any "speeds" or other numbers advertised to you. They are virtually always bull****. Research before you buy.

The pretty 300 MB/s number tells you the speed from the disk drive's internal buffer to the HD controller. It says nothing about the data rates between the disk's buffer and the platters, nor does it say anything about the data rates between the disk controller and RAM/CPU.

66 MB/s is perfectly normal sustained throughput for a modern hard drive.

I am running Windows XP PRO on my intel P3- 733mhz. When I was in Win98 and Win2000, windows was reading my computer as a 733, But since I have installed XP it reads my computer as a 433. However, when my computer starts up, on the black screen, it does say CPU spees: 733. I am assuming that windows right now is running at 433. I would like it to run at the speed at which it should be, a 733.

How can I fix this?

A:Windows XP reading CPU speed WRONG!

Where are you getting the info in XP that says XP thinks that its a 433? Could you post it here please?

All versions of Windows should pick up the speed of the PC from the BIOS settings. If the BIOS is still showing it as a 733 at startup then XP should also be showing it as a 733.

Causes of faulty speed pickup range from bad PSU or flaky external power supply, to faulty mobo or incorrect multiplier jumper settings.

If XP definitely says its the wrong speed, please post back some more details of your system and its specs, particularly mobo.

When I go to burn a cd in Nero 5.5, I can't set my burn speed any lower than 8x. I am using Memorex Music cd-r's, and they apparently aren't pleased with being burned at 8x, as they crackle badly on every cd player I try. However, they sound fine at 12x, it's just that most cd players don't want to read them at that speed. My burner is an Artec WRR-4848; I don't know what sets the burn speeds within Nero, if it is related to autodetecting something about the burner, but I checked for firmware updates and I have the newest version. This is all very frustrating, as I wanted to burn cd's as Christmas presents, and it is now February. It has been a struggle all the way, to say the least. I thank you in advance for any help you might offer.

A:(Solved) Burn speed problem in Nero

The burning speeds in Nero are based on the capabilities of your CD-R drive, Nero 5.5.10 allows me to burn at 4x, 8x. 12x, and 16x. My CD-RW drive is a 16x drive, so that makes perfect sense.

FWIW, I think you may have better luck changing the media brand, rather than trying to change the burning speed. I burn my music CD's at 8x and 12x, and they sound fine on any of my CD players.

I'm booting off my SSD which is drive C:\ and I have games and programs on an extra hard drive which was origanally drive H:\ but after a restart it switched to I:\ and when I go into Disk Management to change it Drive H:\ isn't there.

A:Hard drive isnt allowed to change the correct drive letter

Hi KiityCancer,

What you say makes perfect sense. So, if a restart changed the drive letter to I, then H won't be there. Why not just leave it at I or is there more to this story...

I have a 2.4 GHZ AMD and in my System Properties General Tab it shows that I have a 1.2 GHZ AMD. I havent noticed any performance difference but it is kinda annoying to me! How do I fix it and have it recognize a 2.4 GHZ processer?



A:[resolved] INcorrect CPU speed

Could you give a more details on your computer specs (e.g. mobo, ram, etc.). Is this a desktop or laptop? Have you checked your BIOS settings for cpu speed? The more info you give the better response you'll receive.

I purchased an asus motherboard and have a soundmax soundcard with up-todate drivers. They've been reinstalled over and over again and still no luck. What happens is when I run any mp3 player (Winamp, Kazaa, Windows Media Player), the MPEG, whether mp3 or movie file, operates at what seems 2x the normal speed. Other files such as WAV and MIDI run fine.
Nothing in the driver's software seems to have an option to reduce it.

This is what I have:
ASUS P4 2.53 Ghz
OS: Windows 98 SE
Soundmax Soundcard
GeForce4 MX 420 GFX Card (AGPx8)

If anyone could help or offer suggestions, please do so!

A:(Resolved) MPEG's at 2x speed.. help!

Nevermind, did a quick search and found the answer on this forum.

Thanks a lot anyway.

Hi again, I have just put a PIII 600MHz CPU on an ABIT BE6 II motherboard with 128Mb RAM, but using the soft menu (FSB 100 x 6)or the dipswitches it recognizes a PIII but only at 300MHz or 450MHz can anyone make sense of this. Apart from this i only have the power supply, a floppy drive, and a SIS AGP graphics card. Any answers would be appreciated. A friend who works in the network service at the college has looked at it and he can't make out what is going on.
Thanks for any help you can give.

Please head me in the right direction to figure out what has happen to my computer speed. Everything is ok on the internet like changing places and looking up things, but when I open programs such as QuickPar or WinRar my computer usage goes to 100% in task manager and stays there causing these programs to take up to 5 times as long as they use to take. I've checked for spyware--nothing. Virus Scan--nothing. There must be something slowing my computer down that use to be quick. HELP!!


A:[resolved] Computer at a crawl speed--HELP!!

My guess is that you have some program(s) in the startup that are hogging it all up. Go to start>run>msconfig and click on the startup tab and search for any unnecessary programs that are starting up with windows. If you don't want to use msconfig, you can use this Startup Control Panel. Some programs which you can take off the startup are programs like realplayer's updater - programs that aren't necessary for the smooth operation of the system. Don't remove anything from the startup if you're unsure what it is. Either google the file name or post it on this thread and we'll help you determine how necessary it is.

In the task manager, do you notice any suspicious processes, like rebates.exe or webhelper.exe?

I posted this previously with no responses, I am hoping that some suggestions will come in although I don't think there is an exact answer to this. I have been doing some tweaking to no avail, so if anyone has any suggestions on what might be causing this or had any experience with speed issues please give it a shot.

Okay, I have set up windows NT backoffice with two network cards, one is static ip local address and the other is dhcp served by the ISP dhcp server. I am running microsoft proxy server 2.0 with access control enabled and permissions set to everyone. I can't figure out why but the speed has dropped considerably, at some times almost unusable. This could be the ISP however I can't replicate the problem on windows 98 using winproxy. Any ideas at all wold be appreciated, thanks in advance.

The record level is Ok at 44bits and 16 but when I play
the sample back it is playing at twice the speed, and that
is with windows recorder, nero wave ed, cool edit and with
Creative Live PLat. By the way, I can hear it recording at
the correct speed. any help would be appreciated.

Hi there. I am using AIDA32 to gathter info on my system. It says my AGP is not enabled and that my current AGP speed is 4x. My mobo is an ASUS A7n8x delux. How can I verify my AGP speed and how do I set it at 8X since that is what my Video card supports? By the way my video card is MSI gf4 8x ti4200.
Please help. I suspect I am going to have to go into my BIOS and do some fiddling....

Please offer what advice you can..

I am going to be buying a new computer in the near future and was wondering if backups, file copying, and defragging will speed up very much?

It seems like that at some point, the drives would not be able to keep up with the processor and faster processors would not be needed for many or even most applications.

I am using a 1 ghz Pentium 3 computer now and am going to get a new 3 ghz computer next.

Also, recently, I read an article about the new dual core Intel chips and that sounds like something that I would like but do not know if they are out yet, and if so, do not know what they are called.

A:Processor speed vs hard drive speed

The main point of having a faster processor is that it runs games smoother, compresses audio and video faster, and so on. These tasks are not particularly dependent on hard disk performance. Nearly all applications will benefit from a faster processor regardless of the speed of the hard disk.

Haven t been here in a while so I tried searching for solutions to this problem and couldn t quite find any that matched my situation Drive DVD! CD DVD CD Reading not but Working!

CD R/RW Drive Suddenly Stopped Working! no cigar Anyway here s my problem My DVD drive just won t read DVDs It reads CDs just fine but just won t recognize DVDs I ve had this drive for a long time now and haven t really had a reason to try a DVD-ROM until recently since Elder Scrolls Oblivion was released All I can really add is that it WAS an e-machines desktop until I replaced the CPU mobo vid card and RAM long time ago I ve filled in my specs where they should be filled in so feel free to check em if you need to My second problem is that my CD R RW drive suddenly stopped working after my sister burnt a CD I was making one for her boyfriend immediately after and it just refused to work from there on Any help would be GREATLY appreciated nbsp

A:DVD Drive Reading CD but not DVD! CD R/RW Drive Suddenly Stopped Working!

lets troubleshoot:

- Update firmwares/drivers/Winupdates
- check teh media for physical damages (scratches etc)
- try burning with a CD-RW to test its not a bad CD batch you got
- disable all third party burning software (nero, roxio etc) and try test with WinXP's cd burning software
- open up the pc and check cables and such connected properly, reseat if needed
- try on another pc
- try this thread :
- how long have you had it in service? it may have well died out...

I am putting together a computer using parts that I have lying around. Both hdd's are sata, one dvd drive is sata and the other is ide. My question is what are the correct settings for the ide dvd drive. Please help, have searched the internet for days, with no luck tying to find answer. Please help, as this is really starting to get on my nerves. Thank you, rftech

A:what are the correct settings for the ide dvd drive

What are you talking about, just plug the data cord into the motherboard and plug the power connector into the dvd drive. That`s all you have to do.

Explain what else you mean if you`re still having problems.

Can someone explain why the storage capacity of my C drive is one tenth of the total storage capacity of the entire hard drive.  I bought this computer about 3 weeks ago with specs as follows: 6th generation Intel Core i7-6700 processor24GB DDR4 system memory2TB hard drive128GB SATA Solid State Drive Now when I go to "Settings", click on "Systems" and then on "Storage", it shows the following: This PC ( C: )61.3 GB used out of 119 DATADRIVE1 ( D: )306.7 MB used out of 1.81 TB I have downloaded less than 1 GB of programs. This seems rediculous to have the C drive with such little storage space. Is this right or is there something wrong. This is how it came out of the box.

I have an 8GB hard drive, and I recently formated it and then reinstalled windows 98. Anyway, when I go into My Computer and click on my hard drive, C:/, it says I have only 50mb of free space. I selected all of the files in my hard drive and I only have 2mb installed. So why does it say I have only 50mb free, instead of 6gb? All my aplications have memory requirements in order to run (I need 500mb or so to run them - you know virtual memory and such), but I can't run any of them because of this problem. What is wrong? Thanks in advance. Kaleb.

Hey everyone Long time listener first time caller I have a quick question about booting from a new drive I just installed an SSD with the intention of copying Windows Correct Not Booting Drive From my system Windows Not Booting From Correct Drive files over from my old standard HD and using the new one exclusively to boot off of using this old guide and despite a couple of hiccups the whole process has gone smoothly Now I'm at the stage where everything is copied to the new hard drive but when I go into the BIOS and change the boot order the computer still wants to boot from the old drive So basically my question is is this normal When I start up normally Windows Not Booting From Correct Drive I can see the new drive GB and the old drive TB but it appears that Windows is running off of the old drive which is still reading as the C drive Furthermore when I either unplug the old drive or set the BIOS to only boot from the new drive I get a quot Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key quot message upon startup I'm pretty sure it should change the new drive to the C drive once I format my old drive and I have everything backed up in multiple places so I shouldn't be too worried but I just want to be extra paranoid about my data and make sure nothing catastrophic happens before I do the any formatting Any help or clarification would be appreciated thanks in advance

After updating Vista Home 32bit to the latest update, my DVD burner has stopped working. I have tried to delete the upper and lower filters but that does not work. Instead of the correct hl-dt-st dvdram gsa-t20n DVD drive, the drive is now labeled as DMDINWJ PIZ0DERK5EB SCSI CdRom Device. Once out of about 20 restarts, the dvd drive actually worked and allowed me to burn a dvd but once I restarted the next time, it went back to not working. I have tried uninstalling the dvd drive and IDE channels but that does not work either. System restore didn't work either. Any other suggestions that I should try???? BTW, I have a HP DV9700 if that helps any. Thanks for any and all help!!

A:CDrom.sys not recognizing correct drive

Use system restore to go back 3 days before the updates. Then see if everything works again, it should. Then post for the next step.
