I was wondering if anyone has any reliable information on what the maximum possible speeds available on the market today for DVD +/- R/RW and DVD-RAM?
I have read a few articles about what is coming up later in the year but i wanted to know what is CURRENTLY the maximum.
I'd greatly appreciate any help!
Hi and welcome to cdfreaks,
here are the current max. write speeds
18x for DVDÂ±R (with some Plextor drives)10x for DVD+R DL8x for DVD+RW6x for DVD-R8x for DVD-R DL52x for CD-R32x for CD-RW12x for DVD-RAM (DVD-RAMÂ²)
if IÂ´m not mistaken
16x DVD-RAM will follow soon.
Just remember that those speeds are advertised speeds. We usually record at about 50% of the posted speed in some cases and even slower to prevent bad burns+coasters. 12X is the max for me on good media and +R. 16X usually results in significant slowdowns at the end of the buring process.
Thanks heaps for that.
18x is available?
I thought it wasn't going to be out until later in the year (or maybe that's just in Australia)
BTW - how do you do the +/- like this "DVDÂ±R"?
The DVD Forum deals with all standards except DVDÂ±RW correct? So who controls the standards for DVDÂ±RW?
