Just got the LiteOn 52x-24x-52x burner and put in in the computer. The drives seems to be slow. I backed up a CD using cloneCD with AWS disabled using the Game profile and it took quite a while. I copied on the fly using my Plextor 40X Ultra Wide SCSI drive as the reader. I used Sony 40x certified media writing at 40X and reading at max.
Ithen did a disc copy in Nero and even changed the registry o see the actual burning speed. It did not go faster than 18x.
I then tried burning an image from my Western Digital 120GB drive connected to my promise card and the Liteon burned the image at 31x.
This does seem slow doesn’t it? I had replaced a plexwriter 40-12-40 so that I could effectively back up safedisc protected discs.
I never tried burning on it with the Nero registry tweak, but it did seem to burn a lot faster.
