Are read speeds for rewritable media slower than for WORM media?



I ask because, though I never noticed this on DVD rewritable media, with BD-RE SL and DL, reads/verifies appear to be slower when reading in rewritable BD versus BD-R SL that I've begun to notice.



As I said, it doesn't seem to be this way with DVD rewritable media, but maybe I just never noticed it before.



Would rewritable media be slower at reading?  I know, obviously, it will be slower at writing, but I'd think the read speed should be the same regardless of whether the media is rewritable or not.  But, maybe, I'm wrong?  :unsure:



Or is it, maybe, it's just slower on BD-RE SL/DL for reads versus reading from BD-R SL?



I am taking into account the layer differences because this seemed to be the case even on BD-RE SL.  That reading contents from a BD-RE SL in ImgBurn was slower than reading in a BD-R SL.

It'll be down to your specific drive. You'd have to take a look at its spec sheet and see what it does on each type of disc.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

Makes sense.  I should have thought of that.
