Using an old 500mhz CPU / 100mhz bus speed PC, why is it that Nero determines that a faster burn can be made from an external USB2.0 HD running at 5400rpm over an internal IDE 7200rpm drive ?
This is the situation I have come across. The USB external appears to operate x2 as fast at supplying the data compared to the faster spinning, larger buffered IDE internal.
This PC is using a USB2.0 card on the ancient motherboard but I would have thought the maximum burn speed would have been determined by the processor and bus speeds along with the other resources associated with PC processing power.
Can someone explain to me why this is so ?
