I have a Plextor 24x with firmware 1.02 and I can't seem to copy games as fast as I should. Using Mitsui and Taiko Yuden 24x certified disks, I read Max Payne an SD2 disk in 5:05 min. and write it in 5:48 min. I also have DMA enabled.
Tonight however, I tried it on the fly and I completed the entire copy in 7:48 min.
I thought it would be slower on the fly if it worked at all since I have the reader and the burner on the same ide channel.
What I'd really like is to improve my write speed when copying the game image from my hard drive to disk. Any suggestions?
