Just got 708a

Hi,

When I burn a dvd+r using Nero, the buffer stays at a solid 84 or 87%. When I burn aa cd-r or cd-rw the buffer stays at 97-100% (as it usually does) Is the 87% normal for DVD+R burn from a HDD on the other channel?

Thanks

using Nero 6.019 and 708a 1.03 firmware

Mine has similar behaviour with the same firmware and Nero 5.5.10.42. It struck me as curious but because the burns were made without trouble, I didn’t pursue it.

It’s quite normal when you think of the fact that the Plextor drive only has a 2MB buffer. When you’re burning a DVDR disc the drive requires a lot more data than when recording a CD disc. For instance 8x DVD+R recording requires 11MB/second while 40x CD-R recording requires 6MB/s. My drive has the same behaviour by the way.
