All of a sudden, it takes 2 hours to burn a dvd!?!

Anyone have this problem before?

I've burned hundreds of dvds with nero, taking about 12-15 minutes each.

Now it takes 2 hours to burn.

I just defragmented the hard drive to no avail.

Any suggestions?

I dunno...the only time I've run into something like this was when my hard drive went/was going bad.

Re: All of a sudden, it takes 2 hours to burn a dvd!?!

The buffer level is bouncing.

It won't hit 100, it jumps between 25 and 51%

I'm not sure what my drives firmware even is.

I've tried several different kinds of media.

It even takes over an hour to read a dvd to be copied.

We just bought this laptop in november, so I sure hope the hard drive hasn't gone bad.

Re: All of a sudden, it takes 2 hours to burn a dvd!?!

I just had my first DVD burner go out on me, and that's exactly what it was doing. The first symptom was that it took 40 minutes to burn a cd. If I tried to extract a disc using that drive it would just skip - and use a lot of my cpu's resources. I defraged to no avail. Then when I tried to burn a DVD with decrypter my buffer would jump all over the place, but never get above 25 or 30%

Oh well, I'm replacing it with a dual layer, so I can justify it as an upgrade

I doubt it's the harddrive, if you just bought it in November it should still be under some kind of warranty

I'm sorry that I dont have a clue what that means.

Would I do this through Nero, or the properties of my drive?

I didn't see either of those things.

I got the info from this page-

It sounded a little intimidating at first, but was pretty easy.

I burned a dvd last night in 13 minutes, and am SO HAPPY!

I was getting pretty frustrated.
