Since the hardware and the OS work at higher speeds with outer software,
I cannot help if your DVD drive is slow or has other deficits that make the

Could you explain outer software compared to inner software?
s/outer/other/ - changing keyboards 3-4 times a day does not improve my
already dubious typing. But growisofs, for instance, gets 9.8 or 9.9x
overall and 12.1x on the outer tracks. I did check using the size and
elapsed time to be sure the calculations are correct, so that's a real
result from the same hardware and OS.
Sorry for the typo, I thought it was clear from context.
But it wants to limit the speed to half of what the hardware will do
with other programs. Clearly there is some issue here, it just isn't
obvious what it is.
it's clear that cdrecord is making an incorrect estimate of the hardware
capabilities. Since you seem uninterested in investigating why that
happens I'll continue using software which can make better estimates of
cdrecord does not make incorrect estimations, it _meters_ the behavior.
For drives that behave incorrectly in this area, just follow the
