Have you checked your Nero settings? There are a few features you might want to disable when burning, like write testing and data verification, these swallow a lot of time as the computer first simulates a burna and then verifies the burnt data with the original to see its ok.

Another thing to check is your media capability, it might not support 16X burning and when talking write speeds you are also able to choose at what speed data is written. I'm not sure but I think 4X is standard speed.

Also, if nothing else helps, go fetch the newest drivers for your device and install these, that can also help, depending on your system of course!

Hope your burning is smoother in the future.

Yes i have checked Nero settings earlier. It is not on write testing and data verification. And my media does support 16x (cause the label says so). I would not even doubt the Media brand as it is among the best in India (Moser Baer).

Few weeks ago i had also updated the firmware of the drive.

Please help.

Is the burner attached to IDE2 as master, if it's on the same cable as the HD (IDE1 usually) you'll have latency problems. Also is your ASPI layer installed correctly, use Nero info tool to check, it'll show a ASPI tab, make sure both Nero & system ASPI layer are installed.
