    Hello,
    How long will it take to burn 4.7GB of data on to a 2X DVD-R drive?

    Is this a movie? Generally, with music it will be half the time it takes to listen to it. (at least it is the case with minidiscs and the 4x recorder) Otherwise I really don't know. I guess it depends on the resolution and stuff of your recording. I think maybe with minidiscs it works that way because you can't choose the level of kbps you record at. (your only choice is to record at cd quality, sometimes above)

    2X recorders reduce recording times for full 4.7GB DVD-R discs from nearly an hour to less than thirty minutes, or 2.76MBytes per sec.
