» Discuss this article (9)
For testing I am going to be burning a 1GB file and a 500MB file to DVD and timing the difference between the IDE and the SATA drives. I will also be burning a 100MB file to CD and testing the difference in speeds. Both drives will be tested at 16X for DVD and 48X for CD. I will also be performing a seek time, transfer rate (both CD and DVD), and a cpu usage test on both optical drives.
