k3b - slow read, but fast write


for some odd reason it takes about 20 minutes just to read one damn cd, and only maybe 2.5 minutes to write.

here are my cd burner specs: 52x24x52 LITE-ON LTR-52246S

I am running Slack 10.0 with kernel 2.6.10 (freshly compiled kernel)

anyways, i have upgraded from my 2.4 kernel, hoping that it would fix the issue of slow reads.

however, nothing in that department has changed.

i am not sure if i have not configured k3b optimally, maybe i need some newer versions of cdrdao or cdrecord, maybe my lite-on drive is not all that well supported (i doubt that though as it has always run fast with other distros). any ideas or suggestions?

by the way i have k3b-0.11.18

Sorry to get your heartrate up, I don't have an answer but I also have the problem. Thought I'd lend my moral support.

What commands are you running to read/write?

Maybe you are missing a command option in there somewhere that might help.

[I am having the exact opposite problem, but was able to get a fast read by reading --on-the-fly and --fast-toc with 'cdrdao'.

Bob, Elomis, Initself,
Have you solved the problem?
I am experiencing exactly the same - LiteOn, slow read, fast write... I noticed that it reads slowly only music CDs. Data CDs are read and burnt quickly.

Help Please!

Perhaps I've been deluding myself, but I always thought that was normal. Reading an audio CD needs to be (or just is) done slowly and more carefully - to ensure a faithful reproduction.

Unfortunately, when I boot Win$ the same CD reads muuuch faster. There must be something simple...
