Slow (hard) drive

Recommended Posts

Hello --

 

using imgburn to create an dvd from an ISO image. The  image ( ~4G) was stored on my NAS drive --  The NAS drive and the computer that did the burn are hard  wired to the  router and all are running at  1G speed.

 

I did notice the fillowing in the imgburn log  --

So seemed that the burn process took about 20 minutes -- I wanted to make a 2nd copy -- so for this, I copied the ISO from the NAS drive to my %TEMP% folder  -- which took 5 minutes --  I did the burn  with this copy of the ISO and this burn took 5 minutes ...

 

Would it make sense to add an option to imgburn to copy the ISO to a "caching" location, maybe the %temp% folder so that 

the burn process would run faster?

 

Thanks
