Closed DVD drive interface Tags: DVD Drives SATA Storage Last response: September 9, 2012 12:24 PM in Storage Share zcoot August 31, 2012 9:08:35 AM I am just wondering if I was to go buy a x24 sata drive would it be able to operate any faster then a x24 drive using IDE? Help would be nice. More about : dvd drive interface Best solution phil22 a c 79 G Storage September 4, 2012 12:04:12 AM Theoretically, yes it would. However, whilst high-speed data transfer is desirable on hard drives & flash media, it's not always desirable or even necessary with a CD/DVD drive. Examples: 1. Watching DVD video or playing CD audio - higher speed would make no difference because it's not required. 2. Burning to disc - higher speeds (if used) can lead to write errors. 3. Although higher speeds are desirable such as when transferring data from CD/DVD/installing CD-based software, just how many times a week would you actually be doing that?
