Warning Message - "consider upgrading your hard drive'

Post by audioguy » Wed Oct 10, 2018 5:31 pm

I get this message a lot:

"Program reads data faster than it can write to disk, consider upgrading your hard drive if you see many of these messages."

I have 500gb of flash storage (no hard drive) and 375gb of it is available on a 1 year old iMac

So what does this actually mean??

It means that MakeMKV can pull data off your optical disks at a faster speed than your system will allow it to write.

It's harmless. In fact, you might consider it to be a bit of gloating.... A lot of programs can't read optical disks that fast.
