New NEC 3520a Not Burning at Specified Speed

When I told DVDDecrypter to burn at 8x the program shows that it’s average burning speed is 6.1x. Is this normal?


@hiwass Yes the burn starts out slower and finishes at around 8x, so Decrypter is saying that is your average from start to finish is 6.1x. HTH.:slight_smile:

Yes thats normal. The NEC burn strategy at 8x is to use 4x for the first 1/4 of the disc, then moves up to 6x for the second 1/4, and finally 8x for the last half of the disc. Similar stepped speeds are used for 12x and 16x strategies. Only 4x or less are a constant burn speed.
