ASUS DRW-24D5MT Burning problems

I've just installed a new CD/DVD writer and am having huge issues when burning cdrs.

CD Architect firstly won't let me burn at anything slower that 16X but when burning at 16X the burning process actually takes about two hours.

As the burn process continues the time remaining just climbs and climbs.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I was searching for answers on this forum for CD burning issues. I came across your post and you have the exact same issue I'm experiencing.

On my 18 track project using 48x Verbatim CD-R, the burning time increases to 500 minutes! Just climbs and climbs. One would think it's your burner wearing out. Well, I can burn CD's flawlessly using ImgBurn and Nero 8.

I have a ASUS DRW-24B1ST burner. CD Architect used to work like a charm years ago on my Windows 7 64-bit machine. I'm surprised I didn't find a LONG thread about CD Architect issues. Looks like people don't burn CD's anymore and that's why you don't hear about some issues with the software.

You mentioned you installed a new burner. Did the old burner work?
