    hi

    ive just installed a pioneer 107d in my pc
    the 107 is backing up dvd's ok, its just so slow. the read rate is 1.9-2x and the buffer goes crazy (jumps up and down as low as 10%. the write rate is the same as the read speed its taking 30 mins to do a disc at least and also dvd shrink takes 36 mins:O even when using dvd DVD Decrpter its only reads at 2x have tried the drive in a friends computer and it works fine the way it should speed, buffer etc.tried using my friends ram as well still the same also a new ide cable.
    im running windows xP home, the 107 is my primary master drive and my hard drive is the primary slave drive
    im running:
    1gb of ram
    p4 2.8
    this should be plenty
    any help will be greatly appreciated.
    thanks

    Put your HD as master, try the writer as master on the secondary IDE cable
