Difference in the copy speeds of CD-RW and CD-ROM drive
Posted on 2002-05-27
I have recently installed a new CD-RW drive (Samsung 24X).
I have a 52 X CD-ROM drive.
MY problem is that when I try to copy data from compact disk of 600 MB (approx) from my CD-ROM drive to my hard drive, the system shows that the time taken to copy will be 25 to 30 minutes. But when I try to copy the same disk with the help of my newly purchased Samsung CD-RW drive, the time taken to copy it as shown by the system is only 6 to 10 minutes only.
Sir, Why is this difference in copy speeds of the drives prevail when my CD-ROM drive is 52 X and my CD-RW drive is only 24 X.
Can you sujjest some of the techniques to improve performance of my CD-ROM drive or is there some other technical difference in the drives which is causing this difference of copy speeds ?
