I currently use a sony optirac 7240s (cd's, dvd) and a pioneer BDR-205 (blu rays). I use Windows 7 x64 for operating system.
I am using the Pioneer to do data backups. When using Nero I can do writes and reads at the drives rated speed (using UDF data Format). Disc writes at 4x with verify take about 40 minutes (writing 23GB data).
If I place a burned disc in the drive and use Windows explorer to copy the data to a hard drive it will only read from the drive at the 2x speed. For a full disk this takes an hour (Nero can read the same disc in under 20 minutes). I have the same problem with any restore software that uses the windows 7 operating system to read the disc (reads limited to 2x).
Is there any software I can buy that will allow me to copy data from the Pioneer drive to a Hard drive at a faster speed?
My other option is to replace the Drive.
I am looking at:
1) LG WH14NS40
2) Pioneer BDR-2208
Does any one know what the read speed of these drives will be when doing copies using Windows 7 or Windows 8 operating system?
