I\'ve installed a 16x DVD on a giga machine and am loading VSL. Its taking a least 1 hour per DVD. I have a DVD on my other machine and I loaded VSL much quicker. If this sounds off, does anyone have suggestions to spead things up?
The GOS DVD\'s are 4.7 GB discs which is a standard burnt DVD. Remember that GOS is over 8 GB so you definitely couldn\'t fit it on a 1.5 GB disc. There was another thread that I read somewhere else of something that is a little different with the VSL discs and that they weren\'t compatible with all drives.
scores4film, some of the VSL-DVDs are double-layered and contain >8GB data - it seems that some dvd-drives do not read double-layer-dvds very reliable .... had a similar experience here using a 16x-asus (whatever product there might be really inside the enclosure)
I use Asus as well, and had looong load times
too - but that was before I reinstalled my system.
When I did that, I did\'nt install any of the Asus
software - and now the load speed is 3 times faster. It might not be the Asus DVD software,
could be something in the reinstallment - but
maybe its worth a try....
