CDROM speed is slow
Posted on 2003-02-20
I have a 48x Memorex CDROM and a 32x12x40 CenDyne CDRW drive. There are two options to burn a CD:
(1) Source CD is in Memorex CDROM without on-the-fly
(2) Source CD is in CenDyne CDRW
Theoretically, the time for reading source CD in option
(1) should be faster than option (2).
But I found that reading speed from 48x CDROM is only at
8x (1,200KB/s), and reading speed from CDRW is faster,
normally at 3,000KB/s.
I want to know what's problem with my Memorex CDROM.
PS. Here is the configuration for CD drives:
IDE 2 MASTER CenDyne CDRW
IDE 2 SLAVE Memorex CDROM
