Hi there, I've been searching this place for info on which DVD-readers/burners have the fastest access time, not burning time, but I can't find any info.
I play a lot of PC games and also back up my HD often, and I'm trying to find the fastest optical drive in terms of "Time from when you put in the disc and until the disc is readable on the screen", the grabbing and accelerating part of the disc drive behavior. Of course also a high reading rate.
Right now I have a cheap Samsung IDE DVD-RW that has started acting up on me, clicking and hiccuping, and I am going to buy a new SATA one, but I need to know which manufacturer has the best horsepower in their CD/DVD units, in terms of acceleration and load-time (not necessarily top-speed or burning rate).
Any info on good "fast-drawing" readers? Or is there perhaps firmware or something that you can edit so as to make your existing drive quicker?
Grateful for any response.
Your humble noob,
