I burned that one from my Seagate 18GB 15K SCSI drive.
The scan was good.
Then I burned another one from a Maxtor 160GB 7200RPM 8MB.
The scan was also good, it was the best one I ever burned actually.
I burned it with Nero 6 and it took about 11 minutes!
My PC is a Compaq SP750 workstation. Dual PIII Xeon 933MHz, 512MB RDRAM and builtin SCSI Ultra Wide controller. Could it be my PC’s performance, or lack thereof that prevents me from reaching 16x?
