So I took the plunge and upgraded to a slot loading DL DVD burner. I just downloaded the new PC Wizard 2006 to mess around with and noticed that the burn speeds were off. Here are the burn specifications for the Pioneer DVR-K05:
DVD-R DL: 4X
DVD+R DL: 4X
Below are the speeds that PC Wizard 2006 is reporting.
DVD-R DL: 2X
DVD+R DL: 2X
To be sure, I burned a full 4.7GB of data to an 8X Fuji DVD-R with Nero 126.96.36.199 and it took 14 minutes. Nero does report that it's burning at 8x but after the 8 or so minutes are up in the time remaining field, it automatically adds another 5 minutes.
My notebook specs are:
Pioneer DVR-K05 with firmware 1.03
I'd appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks in advance.
