Write Speed problems..please help..?

Have you benchmarked your source drive for DAE to determine what it
might be capable of for OnTheFly burning before your attempts???
Utilities exist...

Another issue is most drive/program combo's need to be tested and logged
within the program setup; be sure to use a *full* disc as the DAE
increases towards the outer edges and a short disc will shortchange the

I don't agree that 2x source over burn speed DAE is necessary for OTF
burns since I've successfully been doing OTF for years with much less...
You need at least slightly over the burn speed "Inner Track DAE" rates
of course.  A decent cache helps too in case of a recoverable glitch
re-read, but is only necessary if you have an older drive without
'BurnProof' or similar 'recovery' ability...

1. Write Speed problems..please help..?

I'm not sure what you expect even with all the newsgroups you asked.

At a wild guess - you are providing virtually no information - you are
trying to copy an audio disc. In general, the drive which you are using
for extraction must do clean DAE at twice the speed you want to write.
Since you did not mention the parameters of your source drive, it's
fortunate that we don't need to know them: it is most unlikely to rip
audio at 100x - or even at 32x which is what you could get away with
under some circumstances for at least most of the disc.

If your source drive rips cleanly at 8x (CD terms), then you can
probably burn at 4x. You certainly can't read at 8x and write at 52x -
but you knew that, right?
