10.3: Create a system install firewire disk
Authored by: shemp9999 on Dec 31, '03 01:26:15PM

it's a common misperception that DVDs read slower than CD's - but it's not true. due to the apples and oranges techniques employed by the marketers of such devices, a 1x CD read speed is ~150kb, whereas a 1x DVD read speed is over 1 MB.

pioneer says the DVD reader in my G5 (DVR-106D) is 12x (16.62 MBytes/sec) and it reads CDs at 32X (4.8 MBytes/sec).
