I enjoy treating DVD+R’s and DVD-RWs(×6) as if they were USB sticks and DVD-RAM’s using UDF.
Disc lifespan expired? RW cycles consumed? No problema, because:
I have backups.
That DVD-RW was worth only €0.15 per piece anyways.
Honestly, I have never managed to exhaust the rewrite cycles of any RW disc, even crappy quality ones. (using the BU20N or BE14NU40, still extreme quality. The SH-S182 from 2006 fails burning CD-RW due to expired lifespan, but DVD-RW? No problem, surprisingly!).
Great! Would you mind creating and uploading a burning speed graph, if you don’t need the DVD+RW for anything else and don’t mind testing it?
I wonder, how Z-CLV and P-CAV graphs look like.
On CD-RW on a laptop drive, it probably goes Z-CLV 16, 20, 24. The maximum rotation speed at the beginning would equal 38.4× CAV, so laptop slim drives definitely have the potentials for matching desktop drives nearly by reading speed (if DAE quality does not suffer, evem DAE speed could increase).
Writing speeds like that would probably compromise quality on slim drives.
But that would be a problem, if the power supply is too weak, so these speeds are just maximum speeds
Didn’t work in at least two slim drives. I’ve never tried to treat RW like big floppies, only regular burning. I’ve tried however to use BD-RE as USB stick formatted in UDF 2.50 in Windows 10 successfully, but since my main OS Linux doesn’t support writing to UDF 2.50, it is irrelevant to me.
• No accidental ejection possible.
• I can hear, when exactly there is read/write activity. The green (blue for BE14NU40) indicator lighr blinks differently for read and write, so that they can be distinguished from each other.
• The disc, like SD card, or tiny USB sticks, does not stick out of the device. In case of discs, it is completely inside the computer (or external drive).
