[access-uk] Re: Windows 7 and DVD RW

Mike,

 

I'm trying to get a handle on when and when things are being delayed.

 

Approximately how long does it take before you hear the DVD spinning?
If you don't hear it in say 15 - 20 seconds, I'd suspect the DVD drive
or the media.

 

Do I take it it's the same for all DVDs?  If you've tried 5 or 6 then
it's unlikely to be media.  And I presume it's a fairly new drive?

 

George.

George,

 

Thanks, I don't understand it, I have a 3.4Ghz Quad running Windows 7
home with 4 Gb of ram and it is a Sony DVD rw, yet it is so slow.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Regards,

 

Mike

        Hi Mike,

         

        From closing the DVD drawer to seeing the initial screen from
the DVD itself took 30 seconds exactly.  And I was running Outlook
2003 and Solitaire at the same time.  FWIW, my 64 bit Windows 7
Professional system has 3GB RAM, and a 2.4 Ghz Intel Quad Processor.
It's Windows Experience Index rating is 5.8.

         

        George.

        Hello,

         

        If someone has Windows 7 64bit, can they please try inserting
a DVD movie and let me know what the seek time is before autoplay
comes on.

         

        Mine is running about 5 minutes or so before Autoplay appears.

         

        Many thanks,

         

        Mike
