Default Device Buffer 86%-90%

Hi all,
A nice icy day here in N.J.
I have a question about the Device Buffer in Imgburn jumping between 86% and 90% during the entire burn. I know the Sony D11 isn't the best media but the device buffer has never bounced around like this before. Sony for the kids, TY's for me. After doing some searching I found information that came close to my situation. DMA is enabled. Here is my burn log.
Thanks

well the benq will slow the burn down when it hits bad areas in a so-so blank, but at 4x and the time, doesn't look like that happened much

drive being fragmented will also impact the buffers

didn't really look like a problem tho

Thanks Chewy
Checked fragmentation. Needs to be done. I usually defrag a few times a month. Guess this would be one of the times.

having an extra data drive and dedicating it to finished movie files is nice,
I try to keep them for a while and make sure all the burns play fine.
Every so often I go in and delete all of them, windows doesn't do a very good job of keeping them in order at all. Right now I have 100 gigs free on one partition and I know it's more red than blue.

My BenQ's are always at that level, it's perfectly normal.

Remember the drive only has a 2mb buffer so it doesn't take a lot for it to move around by a few percent.

If in doubt, post an IBG screenshot so we can see exactly what's going on.

@Chewy I always wanted to install another HD just for the reason you mentioned. I've got to get to it!

@LUK the device buffer has always moved around with the Benq. I seemed to be moving like a clock up and down. After quality scanning, I probably need to stick with the TY02 for the kids as well. Not so good around the 4GB mark. The 2mb buffer was a thought as well.

@NightTran I'll give that (WOPM off) a try the next time I burn.

Thanks for all the advise.
