What is spin down time under Nero DriveSpeed?

What is spin down time under Nero DriveSpeed? My current is 2min, is that right? Thanks.

It’s how long the drive waits after it has finished being accessed, before it stops the cd spinning. I’ve set mine at about 8 seconds…I think it’s really just to stop the noise of the 747…sorry cd/dvd drive getting on your nerves :stuck_out_tongue:

so how is it - the slower the better or the faster the better?

it’s somewhat of a tradeoff. the faster you have it spin down, the sooner the drive noise goes away, but if you access the disc again, you have to wait for it to spin back up.
