3530 fe 3.01 dl transfer/speed check

What is up with this?

That is supersonic transfer rate for a NEC. I will try a DVD burn next!

Which dvd+r dl media did you use?

That was “National Treasure” factory DVD

Just burned a backup in Shrink and it shows the same thing. Slow start up and then it leaps to supersonic speeds.
Wow! Nice reader!
