i have a LG GSA-H12L and a Verbatim 3x DVD-RAM (media) on XPSP2 with Panasonic DVD-RAM Driver Ver 18.104.22.168.
I benchmarked with a single 100MB file and another 100MB small files and it had terrible speed. I stopped the write time manually by stopwatch and 100MB needed 03:37min. That’s proud 483kB/s.
Then i tested with Nero DiscSpeed4. The first 300MB were ok (1.41x Speed) but the rest slowed down to 0.34x Speed. Is it because the disc was never written before on that area? I think the disc was just quick formatted (UDF 1.50) all the time.
Do i have to do a full format first on blank DVD-RAMs to get full speed?
