I recently started burning some +R discs with a Plextor 708a. I am using Memorex and Verbatim discs. I am only doing backup’s of files of my harddrive currently.
The problem i have is when i go to access those discs in my plextor or samsung dvd-rom it takes along time to open .rar files or anything else on the disk. Browsing the directores is quick and copying files from the disks back to the harddrive is fast but trying to open a rar file is really slow. However the rar’s are parts of large iso’s. Is this normal?
The dvd-rom is running in UltraDMA mode and the Plextor is installed in a External Box runnning on a firewire interface.
