First of all I would like to thank all of you out there that take your time to post you problems and solutions , this forum has been of great help. Now to my problem. I bought an NEC2500a a couple of months ago and have not experienced any problems, however after reading some post I came to notice the different writing speeds. I have noticed that my burner writes a full movie DVD- (vertamin) around 45-55 minutes and it rips dvd's around the same time. I use the latest version of Nero to burn and have applied the registry edit to allow me to choose the burning speed. My question is: how long should it take for this burner to write at 2x, 4x, 8x,+X : dvd-(movie), dvd+(movie), dvd-(data), dvd+(data), cd, and cdrw.. I tried looking through the forums but was unable to find anything in detail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
