I would be gratefull for help, just a week or two my inside and outside (USB) recorders started to work extremly slow.
Using Nero 14 i can see the real recording speed 800 - 1 500 kB/s when using 16x (22 160 kB/S). My usb samsung blu-ray recorder also work very slow - data fo 25 Gb disc takes about 4 hours.
It is a new machine, 16 Gb RAM, 3770K on board so it is a fast one but recording...
I tried deinstaling IDE i decice manager.
I tried Ashampoo, CDburnerXP - all the same.
During recording HDD 0 (c shows 1% usage.
No software in background - just Kaspersky
DVD and Blu-ray have no errors - veryfication ok, surface test also - only very slow.
Tested media: TDK, Sony, Panasonic (all 16x for dvd and 6x for blu-ray)
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)
Look in Device Manager. Right click on the burners and see if DMA is enabled. Usually when super slow kicks in it's because somehow this setting gets changed to disabled.
Turn Direct Memory Access (DMA) on or off - Microsoft Windows Help
The instructions are for Windows 7 but once you get to Device Manager I'd bet it's the same.
In W8 the quick way to Device Manager is hit Winkey-x then m.

My guess would be theres something wrong with the dvd drive.I also have the same computer.Either the laser in it is shot or needs cleaned or the whole drive has failed.
Nero Burning ROM crashed during burning and now my DVD drive is unusable. I cannot open the drive, I cannot shut down the computer because it says "Waiting for DVD Drive D:" and the drive runs like it is still burning despite the program doing the burning is no longer open. It isn't even in any process. What can I do to make the drive stop?
Go to Task Manager...shut the system down from there.
Turn system off....hard shutdown if necessary...disconnect the optical drive.
Sounds to me like it's a hardware problem moreso than a software problem if you cannot manually open the drive.
some nero burning user veteran??problem burning cdr ,dvdrs.i cant burn a cdr.with windows media player is posible.also i use clone dvd with sucess. with nero is posible to erase a cdr-w.the problem is i cant record a cdr.when it comes to 3% to 8% the program tell "the burn failed"some advice?thanks for the attention
I am a "Nero Veteran", war veteran, etc.. etc.. The reason your having problems is simple. Some discs cannot be copied, as they may be copy protected or contain errors. If you are unsure if your disc can be copied,
run a trial in the "simulation" mode. Click on "More" at the bottom of the page and select "Simulation".
When I burn cd/dvds with Windows 7 built in burning software and windows media player all my burns are successful. When I try to use Nero, CD Burner XP or imgburn, it fails. My computer is plenty fast enough(2.8ghz, 4gb ddr2, 250gb sata hd) and I tried reinstalling windows 7 without nero or deamon tools and tested with CD Burner XP, it still failed. I am using Sony blank CD's and also tried a few other name brand. I am burning at the lowest speeds. I purchased a brand new dvd burner and the firmware is up to date. The error I am getting is "Could not write to Disc". It fails randomly anywhere from 3%-30%. Any ideas? Again, windows 7 native burning works fine but other software does not. Same pc, same blanks, same burner, same hardware just different software. Any Ideas at all?
Bottom left corner of Spectre x360 is BURNING HOT !!! There are many other messages on this forum describing the same problem but HP SUPPORT IS NOT ANSWERING THE QUESTION !!! HP SUPPORT, PLEASE DO NOT JUST POST A BOILER-PLATE PRE-WRITTEN ANSWER TO THIS. In other messages on this forum, multiple replacements of Spectre x360 ALL HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. Is HP going to fix the problem and do a recall, or what? How do we know that HP is aware of and working on this problem?

Ok, i'm new to this CD Burning. I have Nero Express, and i'm having a little problem with it.
I've copied an Audio CD to a CD-R, and it plays fine, but there are still space on it, and i wanted to put a MP3 (it converts to CDA really nice also) together with the already burned tracks, but i can't. Everytime i put the same CD, i get the folloqing message:
"This midia cannot be recorded
Please Insert another midia."
(Sorry if it's not right, cuz i translated from portuguese)
Can i do what i want?? How??
Sorry if it is hard to understand, it is hard to explain.
You cannot append any audio files to an disc that has been completed. Once a disc is completed it cannot access the remaining space. Especially with Nero Express. Once a disc is burned it is "closed (finalized)."
This is just a simple explanation.
I believe Roxio's Easy cd creator lets you add files to your disc as long as you don't "finalize" it. Until you finalize it you will not be able to listen to the music.

I have been burning my dvds with convert x to dvd with no problems up until this . Every time I go to burn a DVD it will convert but when it burns it is taking so long (I usually burn at 6x) I did a speed test and it said it was burning at .05%. It would probably take 5 hours to burn a normal movie,Anyone know why this may be happening? Thanks in advance
If you are converting to a format readable by a dvd player they burner will burn very slowly depending on the source file. Now does you cpu max out when burning?
Have been burning CDs through Windows Media Player forever; no problems. Suddenly, when I choose 'Burn CD', nothing happens. No error messages.
BUT, when I choose a previous playlist to burn, it works. The non-burn problem seems limited to only recently downloaded music playlists. These same playlists do play on my computer, so they're obviously recorded and working.
I 'upgraded' from a Dual Core Pentium D PC with GB RAM Running XP to a Dual Core E at Mhz with GB RAM and WIndows Bit I noticed when I was burning a CD the whole PC seemed to Slow when Burning slow down while this was happening If I wanted to view pages on the internet the pages wouldn't load Slow when Burning until the disk was finished This was a problem I never had with my previous PC or any for that matter I noted the WEI mark as the lowest being the Hard Drive I decided to do a clean install of Windows and see if that made any difference Once re-installed i ran the WEI and got this time The score was based on the CPU which was the lowest scoring this time I also noticed the memory score had dropped to The PC is still running slow when running more than one application I just think it's strange I'm using a more powerful PC than the one I had but appear to be unable to utilise it in atleast the same way as I did I've made sure the BIOS is uptodate and I have contacted the motherboard manufacturers FOXCONN but I'm waiting for a reply Does anyone have any ideas what's up here
did a new install of windows 8.1 retail and burned a dvd in 9 mins at 8x speed,then i rebooted the computer no dvdburner there anymore so i used this hack reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001
rebooted the machine dvd burner is back i burn another disk set it at 8x speed but very slow took 30 mins to burn the same disk it was only burning at 3.6 speed.so my question is how do i fix this problem.
The hack may be the problem, its probably showing up as a slower speed drive. If the DVD drive did not appear after reboot, I would have gone to the Device Manager (it would probably showed up as an error) and uninstalled the drive in the Device Manager and then restart the PC. When Windows starts, in these cases, it will usually detect and reinstall the drive and fix the problem.
I don't know if the Upper/Lower Filter problem in older Windows is a problem in Win 8. That would be another issue.
i don't know what happened,
my dvd burner was ok...
but now i can't burn even 1 dvd
it's very verrrrrry slow. more than an hour.
& it always fail in the data verification.
i tried nero, roxio... i uninstalled it & reinstalled it.
but the same problem.
i tried different media...
i don't know what happened. maybe i installed something that changed something in my vista settings?
i uninstalled my "daemon tools". but the same problem.
i remember i installed "macdrive" on my vista (a program). but i uninstalled it weeks ago.
why it's burning soooo slow? (&why it failes in the data verification)?

hello, I bought a new 52x24x52 cd-rw (Artec) because i thought my old one was burned out. The problem I'm having is the when I try to burn cds at a high speed for some reason they take too long and I know that's not right. For example , I burned at 24x and it took 11 mins.
I'm running Windows XP Home Ed. with 750 mhz, 256 RAM, 40 Gig drive. On my IDE1, I have the harddrive as the master and my cd-rom as the slave. On IDE2 i just have my burner set as the master.
So can someone please help me to understand why this is happening. And can you fix the problem.
Did you burn an image to the hard drive, or from a cdrom? if from cdrom, how fast is your cdrom ? also, the cdrs are what speed? the cdrs have a writing speed limit. if the limit is 24x, then all your discs will burn at 24x max. I don't think there are 52x writable cdrs yet. although some discs still write at 52x. (not all). that's probably your case.
I have a Sony 52X CD-ROM and an LG 52X CD-RW. My problem is when I am copying from CD to CD, no matter what speed I choose, it won't burn faster than 8X (it goes up and down, between 4X and 8X). I have my burner as master, and my cdrom as slave. I've tried using different versions of both Nero and Roxio, and I always get the same final result. I don't understand why it does this because when I burn anything off my harddrive, it burns at full speed, 24, 32, 48, etc. If anyone has any ideas how I could fix this, I would appreciate it. It's been doing this ever since I made the computer.
Are the jumpers on the CD drive set to master and slave, instead of "cable select"? Try switching the positions of the drives on the cable(i.e.: swap master and slave). Try putting them on seperate cables.
I have a Hewlett Packard pc and suddenly the CD/DVD writer is only able to burn cd's an 3-4 times speed, instead of the 40 times it usually manages. I have tried closing down all unrelated programes but this doesn't make any difference. DVDs are taking over 2 hours to burn instead of the 15 mins usual time. I noticed that this has happened since using the Lightscribe feature on the drive, but I can't see how this would be the cause. Please help!
Go to Start > Run, type in devmgmt.msc, double-click IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers, double-click Secondary IDE Channel, Advanced settings tab, if either one says 'PIO Only' switch it to 'DMA if available'.
I have a 52x24x52x burner and I'm using Nero 5.5.10 version, it came with the burner. I'm tryin to burn my MP3 music files to a disc. In the process my transfer rate or buffer starts at 100% but then gradually goes down real low and then kicks back up. It is taking to long to burn. I tried to burn at 24x and it took to long, like 11 mins. The blank cds i have are 40x so i know its not the cds. Also i have no programs running in the background.
So if anyone can help me i would appreciate it. Is it my settings or what. Can you you give me the steps on how to change it if so. I have windoes XP home Ed. 750 mhz amd duron processor, 256 RAM
If nothing else you could do with more ram
can somebody please help me?!
My laptop takes a day just to burn a disc, it's very slow it wasn't like this when i bought it but now i have no patience for it. It's out of warranty too!
Is there anything i can do to fix it?
If not if i buy an external dvd burner would it be quick or would it still be slow.
i use to be able to copy and burn a movie and it would take about 20 to 30 min now it takes 1hour and 30 min what could be causing this. even after remouving and reinstalling the program it is still slow
At this moment I'm burning a data dvd using Windows Explorer. It formatted the empty dvd and I had to drag my files (more than 4 gB) to the empty dvd folder. Then it started copying the files (burning them). But it's extremely slow? It is transferring the files at a speed of about 594 kB per seconds and burning the disc this way will take about more than 2 hours? Don't know if it matters but I was using the Live File System.
It's a notebook I just bought with Windows 7 preinstalled.
Do I have to do something special like setting the write speed somewhere? Is it normal that burning a dvd this way takes sooooo long?
dvd burning is slow altogether, it depends on the movie sizehttp://www.sevenforums.com/general-discussion/101927-slow-dvd-burning.html
I am trying to write a back-up disc on my dvd drive. It has so far taken 16 minutes (supposidly writing at 20x3000kb) it still hasn't finished! (stopped at 17mins - burned disc OK) It would normally only take 2-3 minutes. At the bottom of my screen there is a square box with a green colour in the middle - it says CPU usage is 100% but then it changes to a black colour which alternates around1%-5%. Is this the reason why? Any suggestions please???
What makes you think the DVD writes at 60mb/sec? A 1x DVD writer transfers at 1.3mb/sec, and 8x (10.4mb/sec) is about state of the art right now. You didn't say how much data your disk has on it, but 17 minutes doesn't seem out of line.

Hi and welcome. I've moved you to hardware for better assistance.
Sorry I don't know where to put this topic. So here's my problem, I'm trying to back up some files on a DVD-RW, the burning started 14 hours ago and now it's only at 30% of 4.7 GB!

I'm using a Plextor PX-708UF with Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator Home 6 that comes with it, I selected the option PowerRec (which was recommended). Here's a screen cap:

I generally use Ashampoo burning software 7 to burn files to discs etc and it works fine........however it wont burn to RAM discs.
I tried using the Windows built in burning operation to drag and drop 2 gb of files to a DVDRAM disc......it started OK, but after 40 minutes I pressed cancel.
I burned the same files to a normal DVD and it was done in a couple of minutes.
The discs are made by Panasonic and should be just drag and drop.
My DVD drive is an Asus sata drive. I checked on the Asus web site and the last driver build was a few years old, so I didn't try it.
Anyone else having problems with DVDRAM discs?
Is there other software I could be using?

It sounds like you may have been trying to burn an audio cd using files that are not in WAV format, and a Video DVD using files that are not DVD compatible. When you are burning a video DVD, it is essential to have your video files in a DVD-compatible MPEG format.
You could also try solving this problem by burning a data CD / DVD (using any file types), but then they would only play on the computer and not on a standalone player.
I recently upgraded my wife’s computer from WinME (ouch!) to Win2000. Over a few weeks, I have managed to work out virtually every kink, save a few. This one has me stumped.
Her CD burner now burns so slowly that I can recite the entire first four books of the bible before a one-hour music burning effort is over. The support discs that came with her computer were from HP and they support ME. So no help there. It really seems as if it’s burning at 4X or something silly like that.
I’m not certain I know how to provide the information someone on this forum would need to help without being asked for it, but I am trying to get it running. What used to take 5 – 7 minutes now takes, without exaggeration, 45 minutes.
Can anyone help?
hi i have a 2gb duo core 3ghz custom tower, i just bought a new lg lightscribe dvd/cd burner and insttalled it for the use of my grand theft auto san andreas i purchased for my computer was a lemon and i got in hold with thje distributor and they emailed me and iso and know im burning my iso on to a dvd R and it say this help me please i want to have it done at least 3 times faster?
Hi Nick. Welcome to BC? Am not sure what you are trying to burn, but that is ridiculous. Try the free IMGBURN. Select MODE/Build to make an ISO and MODE/WRITE to burn it. Takes a few minutes, and the same to verify.http://www.imgburn.com/I wouldn't bother using anything else.Cheershttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/166479/slow-image-burning/
My cd burner has suddenly slowed way down. I used to be able to burn a full 700mb in about 4 minutes and now it takes close to 15 minutes.
I am running xp. I use Nero to burn. What I have tried is I put in a brand new drive. I also uninstalled Nero and installed the newer version that came with the drive. Neither of these helped. Anyone have any suggestions. I am at a loss at the moment and any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have a Samsung DVD writer SH-203B,20X speed with Nero 7 Oem software,recently install Nero 8 Trial software then uninstall with Nero Clean Tool,then install back Nero 7 Oem then the burning speed becomes very slow like burning at 1.25x speed.
Normally burn 10mins for Data Now it take 55 mins (Blank media is same 16x Verbatim).
Please someone help to give some advise.
Thanks in advance.
Have you tried changing the burning speed?
Hey, I need help.
I've been having problems lately with my DVD/CD burner. It seems that now whenever I input a blank CD-R to burn data, I cant get it to burn any lower than 8x speed.....I need it to burn at 4x speed.....I have no idea what to do or where to go and im constantly making coasters because of it....this has got to stop......any ideas?
XP Service Pack 2
Emprex 16x DVDRW with Dual Layer capabilities.
Oh well...I just realized that a firmware upgrade that I made sped up my cd burning speed and I cant go lower than 8x.....so I'm screwed. Thx anyway.
hi everyone i have recently installed windows 2000 and now my dvd burner is mega slow it will burn 3 gigs in 45 minutes at 16x now when i was using window xp that only took 10 minutes max why is it that its so slow i tried searching for the same topic but found nothing.
please let me know whats wrong with this.
Try Nero.It is also Vista Compatible.It can burn CD's,DVD's and Blu-ray Disc's!(Of course,you must have a Blu-ray burner for that!)Also,you can adjust it's burning speed according to your will.You can get a trial version here:-
Also,it has many other features which will make your burning experience richer and better than ever.Try it and report me back here for any problems,errors or questions.I will be open.Good Luck.

Hello, I'm running Windows XP Home Edition and I bought a new burner (52x24x54x) and it is burning very slow. I have my harddrive on one belt by itself and on the second belt I have my CD-ROM as the master and the CD-RW as the slave. I looked at the transfer rate under the Device Manager on both belts.

Hm, if both your hard drive and your DVD burner are running slow, I would suggest maybe looking into flashing the BIOS of your motherboard? Both the HD and the DVD are hooked up by SATA, correct?
A few things to test here: Transferring data from the computer to an external drive seems slow, try transferring data the same way in Safe Mode, see if it speeds up any, if it does, I would say some type of software is slowing it down.
Could try replacing the SATA cables, or if you have more then 2 SATA ports on the board, if they are not already spaced out, try spacing them farther apart(Though I do not see this as a soloution, you can always try it)
One other thing you could try if you believe it might be software/registry related rather then hardware is do a Recovery to a date/time previous to when you experienced this problem, see if that helps any,

your mobo is pretty old and I dont believe it supports USB 2.0 so the external burner it is operating at usb 1.1 speeds which are slower than an internal burner on a IDE channel.
Following is a quote from MrGerber in Doom9's Forum>General>Decrypting. This is the last post in thread referring to first post, Decrypting FAQs, #9. Phrases in bold are mine. "I recommend you try the ?Workaround? suggestion they provide, which requires uninstalling the IDE device driver. The driver should automatically reinstall after rebooting with a fresh start (reset) having forgotten about the accumulated I/O errors that triggered the bug. After that, you will probably need to use the Windows Device Manager Utility make sure DMA is selected for the transfer mode as suggested in Instruction #9. This procedure worked for my Windows 2000 PC."1) How do I uninstall the device driver?2) How do I reboot with afresh start? Just restart or?3) How do I locate the WDMU and make sure the DMA is selected for transfer mode?Posting here rather than Doom9's Forum because no other members were around at the time...<EOM>
All of this can be done through the device manager.
Start > right click on My Computer > Manage > Device Manager
Click on the "+" sign next to IDE channels (or some listing similar) to expand it. Right clicking on an item will allow you to uninstall it. Then restart the computer and Windows should reinstall the item.
Or, double click on the particular channel the problem is with. Under "Drivers" you will have options to roll back the driver or uninstall the driver etc. Under "Advanced" you can change the transfer mode (usually slow PIO mode, or faster DMA mode).
hi my dvd writer has been burning realy slow since i reinstalled windows.all the drivers and firmware for it are up to date could some one please help me?
Check out the solutions at The stuttering DVD drive or the lame hard disk.
Hi guys, i have a lite-on 16x dd burner and most the time it takes mabey 5 min to burn a dvd, well all of a sudden it takes like 3 hours, i useually burn lower then 16x, mostly 12x or 8x well it shows effective burn is 12x but it burns at like -1x lol. cant figure out why.
Is this an ide type burner or sata? If ide, have you checked that it has not reverted to PIO mode? Do this in device mgr. Open atapi controllers and check each channel.
Sometimes I burn DVDs within 10 minutes(x8 speed) and sometimes it takes over 40 minutes.
DVDs are all the same-Verbatim.
All is set to ultraDMA, firmware is updated, drivers are updated.

Hello and Welcome.
This forum is for malware removal help.
A slow machine is not always a product of infection. I don't see any sign of active infection
Please see this sticky topic:
If that doesn't help with the slow machine, ask in either the Windows XP or Hardware sections of the forum.
My Liteon SOHW-1653S has suddenly started burning v. slow - approx 2.3x [on Nero Speed] vs proper 8x - 12x. - takes 25-30 min to burn DVD instead of 8min.
System: AMD 1800
Could it be drive?
Or software problem?
Win Explorer has suddenly started opening folder for drive when disk is inserted - which I'd stopped [but can't remember now how to do] to speed up things. Don't know if that's related.
Thx for any help/suggestions.
Well this may be it http://www.dvdplusvideo.com/dvdguide005.html
I am using ConvertXtoDVD and trying to burn an 87 min. movie. It compressed just fine but taking over an hour just halfway. Never has this happen before. Most times it takes 20-25 min. to burn. What could the problem be?
The version I am using was 5 and it was not working properly so I uninstalled it. Problem solved.
I am having a problem with my computer, it is running kind of slow in general, but in particular, when I try to burn a CD I get a message that the speed of the burn is too fast. I tried doing it on the slowest possible setting and had the same thing occur. This has never happened before and I have burned CD's for ever.
I have done all of the normal things that a person does to speed up their computer (all of the things recommended on this site) with no results and apparently there isn't a malware problem.

Burning, by definition, does NOT involve encoding. Burning is the process of copying data from a source (usually the HDD) and "burning" the data onto disc (CD, DVD. Blu-ray).
Encoding infers that you are taking video files, and CREATING a video DVD. The encoding process converts the source file(s) into a DVD compliant mpeg2 video and audio stream. Encoding time is largely cpu dependant, but some applications are faster than others. The source file format can also impact performance.
So, most likely, nothing is "broken".
If been doing some research online about different burn speeds..
Many claim that slower speeds yield better picture quality?!!
I really cant imagine this?
The media is digital! Burn slow or fast and the same exact source will be on the dvd?! Right!
You're right. I suppose there may be some effect within a range of speeds, under some circumstances, maybe something along the line of more dye molecules making the transition. Even the age of the DVD's may play a role. But the things are designed and tested to work within the speed range noted on the package and I wouldn't expect them to be "better" to any appreciable degree just because they were burned more slowly. There is certainly a strong intuitive feeling that slow would be better, but that is probably not borne out by any evidence.
In fact, I have seen the opposite, too, that media that have a lower limit on the burning speed really don't work well if you try to burn them slower than their rated lower limit.
The drive itself may also play into this. If it spins less stably at higher speeds, that may affect the result. But they aren't supposed to "wobble".
While extracting (large) zip/rar files, the PC is not very responsive: I can hardly switch application, and web browsing, for example, is almost impossible. I used winrar and switched to 7zip, without much improvement.
Maybe unrelated, but another occurrence of slow-performance happens when I burn a DVD image (with imgburn) and I open/switch to another application: the buring buffer/cache drops to zero.
I have this:
DFI Lan Party JR 790GX-M2RS
AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 920
G.Skill PK 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 PC2-8500C5
ASUS Radeon HD 3450
Hitachi Deskstar 750GB SATA-II
This did not happen on the same PC when I had Vista installed.
Any idea where to start troubleshooting?
Check that your memory is sufficient. Is it all being utiliized? Take the memory diagnostic test. Just type that phase in search and then click on memory diagonostic.
After a problem occurs, type event viewer in search and look for errors.
Make sure that all your drivers are up to date, per the device manager.
Try disabiling your fire wall and A/V

My aunt is giving me her laptop PC because she is going on a spiritual journey
and at the convent they will not allow her her own PC.
this computer has had problems, apparently when new it somehow got a "virus" or the OS was just bad,
so a computer expert freind of hers set up a new user account to bypass the bad one and it worked.
the computer a few years later got infected by "firesearch" adware, I deleted it with malwarebytes. (MSE will not work on this comp)
The thing is I want to do a new OS install and I cannot find the original disc. Can I use a 3rd party disc? is it cheaper to
do an OS re install myself or have an expert do it? the computer will NOT go into safemode. If you try it will BSOD.

If you are getting burn errors at only x4 burning to CD media, the data transfer speed from the source must indeed be very low. Now that CD media production techniques allow for high-speed burning (on compatible burners of course), the very lowest burning speeds (x2) are no longer catered for, and even finding discs compatible with that speed is now virtually impossible.
The lowest burning speed you are offered by Nero is the lowest speed that is compatible with that brand/type of disc, since burning at too low a speed on high-speed media can also result in "coasters" just as burning too fast can.
Assuming your burning problem is caused by "buffer underrun" (data not being transferred from the source to Nero's buffer fast enough) you may want to try creating an NRG or ISO CD-image file of your data first, then write the image file to a CD. Buffer underrun is less likely when you use that method. That's how I got around the problem when I had a PC six years ago that was very low spec.
I made an audio CD just yesterday at x16 speed on my Windows 7 box (without using the CD-image method which I never have to use these days). It plays perfectly in my car, no skipping/jumping. That's usually caused by a scratched or fingerprint-covered disc, not a burning error. Burning errors usually render the disc totally unplayable/unreadable.
Hi everyone I have the following problem Burning files from explorer to DVD is extremely slow when the DVD is Slow with DVD Live File burning System formatted using the Live File System option The burn process starts and proceeds in a steady - Kb s speed It took minutes to burn a Mb file to DVD This occurs with two different brands of media maxell DVD R x and fujifilm DVD-R x and two different drives Lite-ON x and Samsung x the Samsung is brand new If I use the Mastered method the time to burn a full DVD takes - minutes which is the expected amount of time for a x burn I have searched the internet but the only suggestion to this kind of problem Slow DVD burning with Live File System is to turn on DMA for the drive but in my case it is already set to DMA enabled and besides it can burn at full speed in Mastered mode The OS is Windows Ultimate x clean install Drag amp drop files to DVD is such a convenient feature is there anything I can do to make it work Slow DVD burning with Live File System properly Thanks in advance
Do you have daemon tools installed? the SPTD driver that comes with that is reputed to hurt real drive performance can't say I've noticed it in practice on my setup though.http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/48593-slow-dvd-burning-live-file-system.html
My CD-RW is being used as a slave to the CD-ROM drive as the master. The transfer rate it is using is PIO and I can't change it to DMA. Is that OK or do I need to change it and if so how do i go about doing that? My CD-RW is a 52x24x52x, my discs are 48x writable and it take 12 mins to burn at 24x and I know thats not right. Please Help if possible.
I'm running a 750Mhz anthlon/duron CPU with 256 Ram and Windows XP Home Ed.
I am having a problem with my computer, it is running kind of slow in general, but in particular, when I try to burn a CD I get a message that the speed of the burn is too fast. I tried doing it on the slowest possible setting and had the same thing occur. This has never happened before and I have burned CD's for ever.
I have done all of the normal things that a person does to speed up their computer (all of the things recommended on this site) with no results and apparently there isn't a malware problem.
We fixed the problem. although I am not quite sure which fix it was that solved it. We didn't try to burn after each thing, but waited until we did a few things. We had an issue with the virtual memory a week ago, and the computer said that it was fixing it, but it wasn't restored to the previous amount. So we did that and added some more RAM, plus a few other basic things, and all seems to be resolved.
ok, before nero burned my cd's nice and quick and the used read buffer always read at about 98-99% and i think the Recorder Buffer Level / state was always just greyed out,but im not positive on that.
Now my cd's burn real slow and my Used Read Buffer just goes anywhere from 5%-95% and my Recorder Buffer Level/State jumps up and down as well.
The only things I can recall installing/screwing with since i used it last is installing clonyxl and clone cd, and i added wnaspi32.dll to my system 32 folder because clonyxL needed it to run.
ive tried taking wnaspi32.dll out, but it did'nt help. so does anyone know if theres a software conflict between the programs or have any other ideas for me? I've wasted 3 cd's already and need it to stop. thx if you can help
I have been using nero ultra for the last couple of Very ultra slow on nero speed ? 7 burning years I have been able to burn a gig in about to minutes I backup my image files on these I do photography for a Very slow burning speed on nero ultra 7 ? living so I do this almost on a daily basis Most of the time I use at lease one dvd and sometimes two The other day I turned on my computer and it was making a noise so I turned it off and called a tek person He turned on my computer and told me it was just a small fan at the back of my drive My computer has a array system not sure if that is how you spell it anyway it backs up data also The tek person did nt turn off my machine he just removed the drive and replaced the fan This is when all my problems started I had to reinstall photoshop and my nero also did nt work I reinstalled photoshop and nero but now nero burns very slow it takes hour to burn my dvd s now I have went into nero and it has a part that says check drive speed It gives me drive speeds but they are still very slow I have no idea what to do The person that screwed it up is no where to be found or is avoiding me I have call his phone What is the answer
The same problem happened to me on Nero 8 on the other pc about a week ago. But no one had touched the computer (I mean, the computer was being used for normal use)
I have to try and re install nero and see what happens
If there is any fix for this pls tell us.
I have one year old HP M9400T that I purchased with Windows Vista 64bit. I have just upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, and after installing Nero, I tried to burn a CD, but burning took a bout 20 minutes (I used to burn a DVD in less than 7). I checked online and saw that in many cases you need to make sure the DVD mode is set to DMA and not PIO, and this can be checked by going to device manager, and checking under IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller drivers. The problem is that my device manager doesn't have any "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controller drivers" listed. The "DVD/CD ROM drivers" is listed under device manager, and the DVD model: HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH15L showing that it's working properly.
Any idea why this is missing from Windows 7 device manager? or what I can do to resolve this issue?
Your help is appreciated.

Hi to all,
Here's a strange one, I've just re-formatted my hard drive and re-installed xp ( not the first time, I prefer this to restore ) anyway I've tried to burn three music disc's using new blank cd-r's. I go through all the motions ( using nero 5.5 ) I do my compilation as normal, hit burn and nero " burns " the disc. When I try and play the disk on my walkman I can skip through the track numbers but get no sound. When I check it out on my pc in my computer it says Free space 0 bytes, Total size 0 bytes. I am sure this is not a hardware problem so what else could it be ?
I've been recording sucessfully with the same set up and software in the past, any suggestions welcome and appreciated.
I am running Windows 98SE.
I download from Kazaa V2.1
About three weeks ago I had to reinstall Windows.
Since then I am not able to burn anything from Kazaa.
In the past I had no problems burning anything from Kazaa.
I can burn from CD to CD.
It goes through the motion of burning, it shows up that there are tracks on the disc, but when I play it back - there is no sound.
I burned an entire music CD and replayed it with no problems. Is it Kazaa or something else. Are there properties I should be checking... HELP!!!!!
I used my 3rd CD Burner and I put my music files onto the CD-RW. Everytime I finish the disc is ejected and CD Writing Wizard comes on and says I have to finish writing the disc. I put the disc back in and it says it doesn't have enough free space when it does! I see the files inside the CD-RW and I can play it but I have to change them into Windows Media Files. I plays fine too! But when I put it in a BoomBox it keeps saying no disc! I have no idea what's going on!
It sounds to me as if you put too many files on the disk and there was not enough room for it to complete the lead out etc remove a couple of files and see if it completes ok ....
I am running Windows XP Professional.
I have just started getting problems burning DVD's. I have the same problem with Clone DVD2 and also DVD Shrink 3.2.
While copying it can freeze anywhere between 9% and 50%.
I have actually burnt two or three discs but then the fault returns.
Up until now it has been fine.
Thank you in advance.

Lets say I have 30 files and each on is in a rar format and all together is just over 4gb(the size of a dvd). It takes almost an hour to unrar them? The end result is a 4gb .img file. Once that is uncompressed and I go to burn it to a DVD it also takes close to an hour.(My burner is only 2.5 but it should'nt take that long)
Does anyone know why these precesses take so dam long?
Windows Vista Ultimate(32bit)
2 gb pc4200
Well for un-raring I am not surprised... that is Always slow.. perhaps try a new unzipper like 7zip...(it is the fastest in my opinion)... as for the DVD it is probably a combination of the slow burn speed and the software... also, if you have a bunch of processes and other programs running while the burn is happening it can slow it down quite a bit...

Normally I would say that is because of media incompatibility with the burner (some brands just don't get on with each other), but reading through your post this can't be the problem as you're using the same discs and burner on both machines. The only thing I can think of at the moment is that the drive is being picked up by your laptop as USB 2.0 but only USB 1.1 by your desktop.
I live in South Korea The internet here is unbelievably fast I ve done speed tests tonight and the download speed averages between - mbps upload speed between - mbps However when I try to watch streaming videos online it s ridiculously slow And it s not just one fast streaming super video connection, Super slow site It seems to be all of them Youtube Comedy Central BBC and MSNBC have all been really slow I notice it the most around - pm here only because that s when I come home from work which is right at the same time most Americans are starting to go to work Is it possible that the United States - workforce uses up so much bandwidth on their morning rounds through the internet that it could devastate my access to streaming video here A brief synopsis The majority of videos I try loading require an obscenely long buffer time upwards of minutes for a minute Super fast connection, super slow video streaming video Not always but usually However oftentimes YouTube will only buffer the first or so of the video So after I play it for a little bit it inevitably catches up with the buffer and I have to wait again Even video quality as low as p still sometimes takes an awfully long time to load Does anybody have any theories I was able to watch the presidential debate earlier today live just fine am here pm Denver time Am I just trying to play videos at peak bandwidth times Are there any ways around this Could there be another explanation This has been a rather consistent problem since I got internet a few weeks ago It has definitely made my online video watching much more irritating if not outright impossible Thanks in advance
Americans use the Internet non-stop round the clock, so that's not the probable reason. I think your ISP is throttling your speed for videos sites. You should contact your ISP and complain.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/470754/super-fast-connection-super-slow-video-streaming/

We recently got 100Mb fibre optic broadband from Virgin Media, but it's been 2 days now and various speedtests report only 2-3Mbps. Other computers around the house get around 20Mbps (none have 100Mbps).
My laptop is a Dell Inspiron N5110, so it's not old, and I run both Linux and Windows 7 (dual boot) - neither OS gets more than 2-3Mbps. I've also tried moving to various spots around the house, to no avail.
I also tried downloading a large torrent (legal) with thousands of seeders to see how fast it would download, and it stuck at around 1Mbps, never any faster.
Why is this? If we're paying for 100Mbps, surely I should expect more than 3Mbps? Other computers on the same network get 10 times this so the issue is with my laptop?

OS: Vista is infamous for its constant annoyance to the user. This is somewhat unlikely, but it could be Vista slowing you down. I recommend upgrading to Win7 regardless.
Processor: The processor seems alright, so you're not having troubles there.
RAM: You may want to consider a RAM upgrade, as many applications (including games) do tend to stick around in memory until a restart. I'd have to say the lack of RAM is your issue. It shouldn't take much more, maybe another 1GB-2GB should fix it up.
Graphics: Nice graphics card, by the way. Beats mine ._.
AntiVirus: Well, the fact that you're careful on the Internet does NOT protect you from viruses. Not at all. I strongly recommend installing Avast! Also, I recommend installing MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and give your computer a nice scan with both of them.
Hello all. I just bought a Sony DRU510a burner. I have a few questions:
1.) Does anyone know of some very thin printable labels to put on them once burned? I don't want anything thick that will bubble up.
2.) Can anyone recommend some good burning software that has a good feature set for adding menues?
Thanks in advance!
I would use sonix cd/dvd label kit. And there is no question on this if your trying to burn dvd's get the new dvd xpress v3.01 allows you to burn entire disc with menu's and all on one dvd. And another have to for burning music,games,data is nero 6 ultra awsome burning software.
I have a computer with vista....i am having a problem with making dvds...either i burn a dvd and everything does not burn...or i put in a dvd-rw it seems to make everything freeze up....i don't know if this is a problem with the type of dvd i'm using or the computer itself...i'm using nero 7 to make dvds(although i was using dvd flick and i encountered the same problem so i don't think it's the program)...any help would be appreciated greatly.
Its important to defrag the drive before you burn the files not every time just check the defragmenter to see how fragmented the drive is moving large file deleting etc fragments the drive..i use nero7 and dvd flick (get the latest version) check performance in windows task manager
Hi Guys: just got DVD X COPY for my machine. There are no instructons with it , I would like to know if there is a site to read up on this program, the site they send you to is to buy more products from them.
In any of these DVD copy programs do they copy to CD-RW or CD-R or do you have to copy from a DVD to a DVD? I say this because I thought I had a go at it but it stopped when I place a CD-RW in th edrive for the second step.
Any Help would be helpful Thanks again Ellen
To back up a DVD film, you use DVD shrink to store the film on hardrive, then use Nero Burn or Roxio to copy the film in a DVD. Using DVD shrink, you could also change the total size of the film to the size of one CD, then you could use Nero to burn it on a CD. You could also want to try DVD Ripper to rip a DVD to a CD.

Is there anything non essential that can be removed from the .iso? I have had to do this a few times to fit a DVD. Other than burning to dual layer disk, maybe creating a bootable flash drive (or similar) to house the .iso data would be an option.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/504688/burning-a-iso-dvd/
I have a brand new Dell E310 at home. I tryed to burn a DVD, and it said that there are copyright laws on the disc. Is there any ways that i can get around this?
Which programs are you using? DVD's contain content protection so you can't just drag the files off the DVD or do a disc to disc copy.

I am trying to burn a DVD of 9 video clips each at around 400Mb, all of them are AVI. I have put together a Menu, but its telling me that I can only fit 2 of these clips on. Whats the best format for burning to DVD? And does it change the format automatically to be a bigger file?
Hi, someone please help. I have been using nero 6 to burn onto my old imation dvd+rw for a couple of years with no problems, then the other day tried to burn onto some new ones id bought but they wont burn. Tried the old ones again, and they do burn. Have tried using Roxio and Win dvd creator, neither of which were successful. Could it be that my burner[writemaster] doesnt recognise the new dvd's and I NEED TO BUY A NEWER BURNER.
Check and see if there is a newer firmware available for your burner which supports a wider compatability of media. If not than stick to using media which works with your burner.
Are there any power toys or shell extensions or other somesuch that allow DVD's to be burnt like CD's right from the Windows Explorer? Nero has been pissing me off lately and I don't want to shell out money if I don't have to.
In order to burn CD's that way, you need an extra bit of software. Turns out InCD, which comes with Nero, is that software. If you have InCD, you should be able to drag files into a burnable folder. Make sure InCD is updated (from the Nero site) because a bug in it can prevent going into Safe Mode.CD Burner XP Pro is a program that can write to DVD's and CD's.Info on backup options here.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/50683/dvd-burning-in-xp/
I'm not sure this is the correct forum, but here goes: I have a movie on my hard drive that I would like to burn to a DVD that will play on my DVD player through my TV. Is this possible? And if so, could someone outline the steps for me?
I know about the difference between CD-R and CD-RW but when I tried to continue adding audio files to a half full CD-R I discovered it was 'closed' so I couldn't do it. Is there a way around this so I can fill a disc over a period. and does this limitation only apply to audio files or data files as well? The documentation with the drive is a bit vague on this topic. Is there any way to open a closed CD-R?
Once the session is closed, that's it.
I don't know how to burn cdshttps://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/c9ab3f70-0b04-454e-8551-2bc75958e806/cds-burning?forum=w7itpromedia
I just got a Radeon X1800XL and it is running at a mind bogling average temp of 87 C. Catalyst says it's running at about Mid-Level High and I've checked the card and the fan is running. Sometimes Catalyst gliches and says it's about 30 C. Any ideas of what to do /or what's happening? The card doesn't glich or anything but I'd rather not burn it out.
87C doesn't sound good even for a high performance card.
If I were you I'd first try to update to the newest catalyst drivers as it could just be buggy drivers displaying wrong temps, but it could allso be that the sensor on the card isn't very precise or has a very high bias.
Another reason for a high temp could be that you don't have enough airflow inside your case, try removing the side panel from the case and see if that helps.
If it does then you do have an airflow problem and should consider installing exstra fans inside your case.
Recently when burning some CD's i hear a fuzzing noise on my car stereo. I've tried these CD's in at least 5 other CD players and they sound fine. I'm using Verbatim Data life plus and burning at 16x. My question is whether it's the Cd's or my cd player?I think its my Cd player but don't understand why. Any help would be appreciated.
there's an easy one..do you hear the fuzzy sound with regular, not burned cds? if not, then of course it's your cdrs. if that's the case, use a different brand.
