I have been using CloneDVD very successfully for a while. I have used several brands of 4x DVD+R media and they all seemed to work the same - just fine. Then, I tried some 8x DVD-R media, as this is what they had at the store at the time. In each case, the 8x media takes a LOT longer to write. It takes about 40 minutes to do the complete CloneDVD deal on the 4x and 1 hour and 15 minutes to do it using the 8x. Simple logic would seem to say the 8x should be faster. I went back to 4x media and the speed returned. ???. Makes me wonder, is there a setting that I should have made to accomodate the 8x media?
