DVD burner Read/Write Speeds

  1. I just got a samsung 18x dvd burner and am confused about the speeds. When I am reading dvds using dvd fab decrypter the maximum speed at around 50% of the process is almost 8x. Also when I am burber a dvd at 16x it seems like it is fast at the beggining, also makes more noise, and then slows down. I thought that the read speed was 16x and the write speed was 18x...are these problems? I thought these speeds were constant and always used.

    Reduce the speeds when you have problems, or allow the burner to automatically adjust speed to conditions. Some DVD discs will only burn in a satisfactory way.

    I just thought it would be faster..dvd fab decrypter only reports that it is reading at maximum 8x at peak.
