Default Sata 3.0 not getting any good speeds?

Ok so I finally use my DVD Burner... and ... I don't understand.

I needed to make a backup (going from RC of windows 7 to full version finally) and so I just wanted to put some stuff on CD/dvd and then format/reload, etc.


So i get everything I want together...and move it to the DVD drive.. and the rates are 2.5MB /sec max.

But it's SATA 3.0 connection... why are my speeds so slow? 2.5mb isn't anywhere close to what I was expecting - and - to boot, my USB is much faster at around 11.2MB/sec transfers...


so...what's the deal? (also.. what's the fastest USB I can get ahold of in roughly 4+GB sizes? I may say Eff this DVD stuff)

What's the max write speed of the drive?
While that is a little lower than it should be, it's about right; read speeds on DVDs are about 15MB/s, I believe write speeds are about half of that (though my figures might be a little out of date.

Also, what program are you using to write the stuff to the DVD?

Program? nothing, just windows 7 standard.


don't remember write speed off top of my head.... I'll look it up real quick

DVD+R: 22X
DVD+RW: 8X
DVD-R: 22X
DVD-RW: 6X


If that's the case on "typical" eff this DVD thing. CDrom/DVD rom is for Input only, flash drives were what I were using, but only 512mb and 1-2GB - I'll just step up to 200x speed 8-16GB flash drives and say "done" with that. Lol.

USB stick sounds like a good idea Make sure to get 200x read and 80x write (30MB/s and 12MB/s respectively).

The speed of the interface means nothing if the speed of the device isn't there. An optical drive will go at the speed of the optical drive regardless of how it is attached.
