Hello,

Whilst in use my Hitachi HTS542525K9sAOO dvd writer is constantly revving up and down and it is taking ages to complete copying relatively large files such 500mb? What can be wrong with it?

Welcome to Tom's Hardware!

What is the speed of your DVD? 4x, 8x, 16x? During the 'Read' phase the DVD will spin faster and read info to memory. Then as the memory transfers the info to the media (HDD, flash drive, etc.) the DVD drive will slow down. For large amounts of data, this speed (RPM) cycling will be noticeable.
