View Full Version : [ubuntu] "copy cd" takes a long time

June 27th, 2008, 08:36 PM
In Windows XP using Nero it takes around 4 minutes to copy a music cd.
In Ubuntu (hardy) I just right click on the disc and choose "copy disc" which works absolutely fine but takes around 15 minutes. Am I doing something wrong or perhaps have wrong settings somewhere?

Is your burn speed set slower in Linux? Last time I copied a music CD it didn't take that long.... just a thought.

You might have accidentally changed the write speed in the CD-burner because I believe it is already set to max in that program.

Or, if you haven't checked it yet lately under Windows too, it might be a problem with the cd-rom (might have to clean the optic reader).

I don't think that's the problem as the actual burning is pretty quick the excessive time seems to be taken up making the image.
