How long to backup a a DL DVD with a 2.4x DV Burner ?

Postby DavidI on Wed Jan 26, 2005 6:48 am

Just wondering - I dont yet have a DVD burner, but am curious as to how long it takes to back up a DL DVD on a 2.4x DL DVD Burner ?

Would a 4x DL DVD Burner speed it up much ?

Laslty, even though I know such speed units dont yet exist, what sort of DVD DL burner speed would be required to backup a DL DVD in say around 3 minutes ?

1)43-45 minutes for a DL DVD @ 2.4X.
2)~25 minutes for a DL DVD @ 4X.
3)Do the math ;)

ah.... but don't forget the law of diminishing marginal returns! a 16x burn is not twice as fast as a 16x burn....... :lol:

Another month or so, say around the beginning of March IIRC.

And media has been announced for Q3/05 ;)

For 6x DL, however, you can use normal Verbatim 2.4x DL media :)
