General question about buffers

vbimport

#1

I don’t burn movies any faster than 6x on my Pioneer as they can get choppy if you go any faster. The Pioneer has a 2MB buffer.

I’ve seen listings for Plextor drives with an 8MB buffer. Would this larger buffer assist in burning movies faster without the choppiness, or not?


#2

no; at high speed the DVD transfers more than 8MB per second so try to set tour ard drive in U-DMA 66 min and or/defragment.
if this is isn’t enough; buy a new HDD for your DVD burns…


#3

In my opinion a bigger buffer than 2MB is completely useless if you do not use package writing.


#4

it’s not completely useless…

multiple recorder burning, burning while other HDD intensive tasks are going on, etc etc all benefit from having an 8mb buffer…
