Z60m: How to increase DVD spin-down time.

I have a issue with the dvd spin-down time, that is very short and thus extremely irritating.

 

When I browse some disc, dvd spins-up to full speed to read a file and after few (around 5) seconds without read request, it spins down (stops disc rotation). On next file that I want to browse, it starts to spin-up again, which takes some seconds.  This is very annoying and time-consuming when browsing lots of files, but I was not able to increase the time that disk stays rotating.

 

I tried Nero DriveSpeed, but it was not able to help. I also found no help on the topic in the net.

 

Do you have idea how to increase this time?

 

 Thanks,

  Tomhet

you can increase the drive speed, by going into system property and property for cd-drive, there is drop down menu for dvd speed.

"by going into system property and property for cd-drive, there is drop down menu for dvd speed."

- Which 'system property'? Do you mean 'Control Panel->System->Device manager' ? Or Exploder->properties of dvd-drive letter?

I can assure I've never seen drop-down for spin-down time in a Windows  XP itself.

Re: Z60m: How to increase DVD spin-down time.

from that you can change the cd's speed, which should help to change the spin down time.
