A disc drive with a disc having multiple concentric data tracks. A track start point is rotationally displaced by a track skew time relative to a track start point of an adjacent concentric data tracks. The read/write head has a write settling time that is more than the track skew time. A data reordering circuit and firmware reorders write data and provides the reordered data to the read/write head after the write settling time. The reordering of the write data reduces write latency.
