help: kubuntu k3b 8xDVD+R but only 2x max
As the title suggests, I am using kubuntu linux, burning DVD with k3b.
My hardware configuration is:
AMD Athlon64 2800+
LG DVD burner with 8xDVD-R 8xDVD+R 4xDVD-RW
However, I get only maximum 2x speed when burning a 8xDVD+R disk (imation) and using up all CPU and memory.
I used to use 4xDVD-R and can achieve 4x speed, but when I use 4xDVD+R and 8xDVD+R, I get 2x maximum speed. However I am not sure whether it is because of the difference between DVD-R and DVD+R, as I did not burn much DVDs. The situation is that I found this problem recently when I am using DVD+R, and did not do any test and comparison between -R and +R after I found this problem.
I found these statements in k3b setting:
"DVD+R behaves like a multisession CD"
"k3b needs to burn multisession DVD+R on-the-fly"
what is the difference if I burn my DVD with multisession or not?
I tried both multisession and no multisession but get the same speed 2x
Can anyone help me solve this problem, thanx.
