My Backups Are Running Slow, Is That Normal ?
Posted 21 August 2006 - 11:30 PM
My backups are not running at full speed, I heard the difference between the DVD Drive's noise of an Original and of a Backup, and when the original runs, the DVD Drive is noisy as hell...and loading times are a lot faster...
My Backups takes ages to load when there're a "Loading" screen somewhere...
Has someone have the same problem ?
Media: MediaRange DVD+R DL
Burning speed: 2.4x
Burning software: CloneCD
DVD Drive: Samsung, flashed with xtreme firmware (the first one)
If someone has already solved this problem, please help me.
Thanks for any help.

However, it is true that backups are read relatively slower than the originals. The main game that I notice this on is between my original Oblivion and my backup copy. It's impossible to play the backup since it takes ages to load up.
As far as normal games such as Top Spin 2, and PGR3, the 2 backups that I have tried, the longer load time is barely noticeable.
So to answer you question...YES, backups are read at a slower than originals, thus the reason why the DVD-Rom doesn't sound like a jet engine when loading backups.

My brother used to have one and it would crash during burn if the media wasn't on their accepted media compatibility list.
Not to say thats the problem that you are having but it might be related.
I've been trying to find the link on their site.. but can't anymore.

The only difference in "speed" between the backups and the originals are when the game is loading, right?
So if im playing oblivion, saints row, dead rising, kameo, dead or alive 4, etc etc, then the only noticable difference is that the loading screens will be on screen longer, right?
Or simply, gameplay is not affected by the slower speeds of the backups (without xtreme3.1 firmware) unless you hate loading screens?
