Not sure where this should go but am hoping someone can help
I have an external SONY DVD Burner. (16x)
I use copytodvd and imgburn
If i rip a DVD onto my PC and burn to DVD from there everything is fine
If i rip a DVD onto my external Hard-Drive the burn works fine for the first 80% - burn speed gets to about 13x - it then slows and drops to exactly 6x.
Does anyone know why this happens?
Is it something to do with USB power?
Any suggestions would be very welcome…
Did you set the burn speed within ImgBurn ? if not you may be set to MAX which will burn at the max speed of the drive/burner itself and not the rated speed of the media your using, depending on the quality of your blank media will really depend on the burn speed you use.
If it is low to poor quality media you should never burn faster then 8x or half the rated speed of the media, most playback issues are caused by low to poor quality media and/or burning to fast.
