Has anyone burned DVDs from files that are stored on an external Hard Drive?
Is the process slower than the normal internal HD>DVD burner?

I want to store ISO images on an external hard drive & then be able to burn those ISOs to DVD. If the burn process is not slower.

Hope that makes sense :hmm:

any help would be appreciated

I do it all the time with firewire and usb 2.0 drives. It's not a problem at all.
I have only burned at 4x, but have burned CDs at faster speeds, though probably only as fast as 12x since I only burn anything important at 4x/8x and my CD-RW media is only 12x.

I do it all the time as well and I too can say it's no problem and takes no additional time (via USB).

There is a bit of discussion of external HDs in this thread:
