I bought the LG 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-ROM IDE UDMA33 INT OEM (GDR-8163B) from NCIX to make a copy of my DVD’s (Yes, I BOUGHT them! ), and I’m using DVD Shrink 3.2 for the backup and copy process.
I’m burning with a NEC-3500A on 4x discs (so the maximum speed is limited to 4x, or roughly 5500KB/s), however, when I’m using the LG DVD-ROM to rip/copy the cd to my hard-drive, it copies at roughly 2500KB/s.
Any idea why ripping with my LG is slower than actually BURNING with my NEC?
Would I be better off returning my LG in favour of a lite-on DVD rom, or is there someway to up the speed of the LG?
