Retrospect 6 Slow Firewire External Backup to DVD-R

Recommended Posts

I use Retrospect 6 to backup my internal 120GB drive to DVD-R, and although not as fast as tape, the backup to DVD-R usually proceeds at ~120mb/min. I am, for the first time, backing up an external Acom Data 120GB Firewire drive, 37.5 GB used, with ~9300 files on it. The backup is moving at only 43mb/min. What's up with that? I tried emtying my caches, running Macjanitor's routines, and restarting the backup with a new set, but it's still poking along.
