i've been archiving data from our database server by creating an iso, and then using cdrecord-prodvd to burn a dvd-r of the image.
the problem is after running cdrecord-prodvd, the system time is about 7 - 15 minutes slow. the actual time loss appears to be related to how big the dvd is. burning 2 gig will slow the clock about 7 minutes, but burning a full 4.4 gig will slow the clock aboiut 15...
has anybody heard of this before? any ideas on how to stop this from happening?
