I,m New also and don't know much about PCs. Have ben working with Fab for 3 or 4 months. I've got lots and lots of things I don't under stand and am to afraid to ask for fear that I'd not understand the answers.
I did, however, read in a previous thread that the wite speed changes as the lazer tracks from the beginning ( center of the disc ) to the end or the outside of the disc, having to cover more ground for each rotation of the disc.
I would think that the speed would start out faster in beginning and slow some as it reached the outer edges. Or vice versa, I get confuised. It seems though that the bite rate should remain about the same.
I hope I'm not wasting your time with my thoughts. As for me all I have is time. I don't worry much about speed. I like to burn fast as long as the copies seem to be perfect, in my eyes anyway. I'll continue to follow this thread and maybe we both will learn things.
