I recently installed a Sony DRU500 DVD burner. I have been creating images with Drive Image 2000 for some time, storing the image files on am external firewire HD. I have never had any problem restoring an image. I recently copied Drive Image files to the DVD burner using Veritas RecordNow and attempted to restore the partition from the DVD. Transfer speed was around 40MB/min.. The stored partition contained about 3GB of data. Any idea why this transfer speed would be so agonizingly slow? DMA Mode2 is enabled on the DVD IDE port.
