I've noticed that some DVD-ROM drives have a 512kb data buffer instead
of 256kb. When will you see a difference? Will I get better performance
with 512kb data buffer when playing movie files (Divx avi, etc..) from a

dvd or cdrom in my drive or when playing games that use the cdrom drive,

or is a 256kb DVD-ROM drive more then enough for those purposes?! Why
the difference between DVD-ROM drives in buffer size and when will you
see benifit from the extra 256kb that 512kb drives have?!
