IÂ´m a DVD newbie & IÂ´m thinking of replacing my 4yr old Creative cd-burner with a NEC 3540 DVD-burner.
IÂ´ll use it for backing up my digital photos & other stuff on my harddrive to DVD+R:s & InCD formated DVD+RW discs.
6 yr old computer with Windows 98SE,
Pentium III 450mhz & 128mb RAM.
Primary IDE channel:
Generic IDE Disk type 46, 8Gb (DMA off)
Samsung DVD-ROM SD-606 (DMA on)
Secondary IDE Channel:
Creative CD-RW RW8432E (DMA off)
(This one will be replaced by the new DVD-burner)
What burn speed can I expect from this old stuff?
I guess that IÂ´ll have to slow down the burn speed to a minimum?
Fast speed is not important to me,I just want to burn discs with no errors. I read somewhere that burning too slow with a fast DVD drive & hi-speed media can produce bad discs. Is this true?
Any other problems I can expect when fitting a new fast DVD-drive in an old computer?
The computer store here sells Intenso DVD+RW & Platinum DVD+R media.
Are they good quality discs?
