Windows 7: Tip: Speeding up writes to DVD RAM

Tip: Speeding up writes to DVD RAM

Writing to DVD RAM seems to be somewhat of a problem on W7, with speeds going through the floor, yesterday copying around 3.5Gb started at a decent speed of over 1Mb/s, only to drop off to around 100kb/s after about half an hour, with a "time remaining" increasing beyond every reason.

Then, today I decided to try something different. I've got VirtualBox on this PC with a copy of XP. Of course XP didn't like the UDF 2.01 formatted DVD-RAM, but that was solved by installing InCD.

And guess? Copying to DVD-RAM still isn't really fast, but at around 4 to 5 minutes per GB it's an order of magnitude faster than using W7 itself...

Try reinstalling the driver for your DVD-RAM drive. To do this, go to start, type in device manager, then press enter. Double click on DVD/CD-ROM Drives. Right click on your DVD-RAM drive and select uninstall. Once the drive is uninstalled, reboot your computer.

SSDs and maximum number of writes
I'm currently running a Crucial M225 SSD, and I know these drives have a limited number of writes. However, will my drive just reach the maximum amount of writes and one day it'll stop working and not boot into Windows? Or how does this work?
