Optorite DVD +/- 4x. Speed Issues.

    I have an Optorite 4x DVD Burner installed on my PC.

    However, whenever I encode/burn, the speeds I'm achieving are nowhere near 4x. Is there a problem with my drive set up, or what?

    When I encode something I usually achieve speeds of around 1,353KB/s. Likewise, when I'm burning, I usually achieve speeds of around 2,770 KB/s.

    Is this normal? I'd appreciate any advice.

    Thanks. Shaun

    Lemme see now,
    That speed (2,770 KB/s) is a little over 2x
    so must take 1/2 hour or so to burn DVD right?
    If you get good media, and check your settings carefully, you should be able to achieve the full 4x speed of approx 5MB/second.
    You will need a modern PC with fast harddisks and a strong CPU, though...
    Perhaps this is what is holding back your speeds.
    What is your burning software?

    Hi OGS,

    Thanks for the reply I appreciate it.

    It generally takes me 45 mins to burn.
    I use DVD Decrypter or Nero.
    I've only got a 40GB harddrive 256mb RAM and an Intel Celeron 1.70GHz processor.
    I might need a little advice on the settings though. The media I use is Datawrite DVD-R.

    Crappy set up I know.

    Thanks. Shaun
