Couldn’t find any thread about it.
Is it normal to have a pair of drives - burner and extra reader?
Just because burners (all?) are very slow readers and speed matters.
I think it’s probably by burners design. Or am I wrong?
My opinion is based on time it takes to copy a dvd (6 files each 700 mb) to HDD.
While burners (including several Plextor ones, I have tested) copy it in a 30-40 minutes, some reader can copy it only in a 6-7 minutes.
Best reader, I have, being 3-4 years old Nec DV-5800.
I also lately got Liteon - SOHD-16P9SV, but it seems to be not as fast as Nec.
