I have a new LG GGW H20l HD-DVD/BLURAY DVD reader/writer (upgraded to f/w YL05), which has a SATA interface.
My harddrive is a SATA SEAGATE 250g formatted NTFS.
As a test, I copied the entire HD DVD movie to my harddrive using Windows XP explorer.
There were 26.7 gigabytes of data transferred, and it took 48 minutes. That figures out to be about .93 megs/second.
Is that a normal speed for just reading data?
I couldn't find anything at all about DMA when I go to control panel/system/hardware/device manager/ and look at the SATA drives and DVD reader there - no mention of DMA at all.
I have ANYDVD installed, if that makes any difference.
Any opinions as to whether or not this raw read speed is normal or too slow, or if there is anyway I can speed it up?
