Re: growisofs will not write at 8x with NEC 3540A
Last response, sorry for all the outward e-mail.
For the first 1000mb or so it wrote at a steady 4x, after i heard the DVD start spinning faster and it then began writing at a steady 6x. Then around 2300mb it started writing at a steady 8x. I am not sure what caused the slow start or even what caused it to speed up.
Hope this helps,
