DVD writer startup-times

Discussion in 'NZ Computing' started by news.xtra.co.nz, Oct 22, 2005.

  1. One of the annoying things with DVD writers (for the pc) is the startup time
    after loading the disc before you can actually do anything with it.

    My NEC writer can take up to 30 seconds before you can actually do anything
    with the disc.

    I wonder, is there a website that lists the startup times for various dvd -
    writers and media? The reviews I read only list the read/write speeds.

    I have an asus, and don't have that problem. Perhaps a 5 -10 sec wait at the
    most.
