DVD spin down reduction

Post by Derek Baker » Wed Nov 23, 2005 6:29 pm

DriveSpeed 3.01 is not reducing the spin down time of my NEC 3500AG when I reboot. I have Restore speed setting at startup selected.

Assuming this is its expected behaviour, is there a free program that will set the spin down time at startup?


Thanks

Derek

cd-bremse.de

But not for all drives. And it's not free (shareware).

You can give a look to Dee website and check for a quite release of the firmware that you are using and eventually (my suggestion) you can even try one of the patched firmware

Thanks for the replies.

iuppone, you're suggesting it's the drive rather than the program. Anyone confirm that this or other drives can have their spin down reduced at startup by DriveSpeed?


Thanks

Yes you can do it by software, I didn't notice di release of your cd-dvd speed, therefore you can even try to update to the last version of it and try again. I was suggesting Dee firmware mainy due to superior burn qualiy achieved with it.
