    Default Slow CD writing

    I've just installed a new *x lg dvd writer.

    I've done the tests in Roxio Easy CD Writer 6, but it only burns cd's at 4x - any ideas?

    What are the specs of your PC. You may need a HDD with a bigger Cache for fast DVD Writing.

    Regardless of what speed your DVD Writer can write at, it will only write to the speed of the disc you are using. I have a Pioneer A06, which will write DVD-RW at 2x speed. But the DVD-RW discs that I have are only 1x speed. I got them when recordable DVD disc were first out, and that was the maximum speed then for DVD-RW. So my Pioneer will only write them at 1x speed. I would need to buy newer discs that are faster in order to get the maximum speed from the Pioneer.

    Hope this helps....idj
