Dvd Re-writer Has Slowed Down !! - now cured thanx to Edds.

Wonder if anyone can help, I have an LG DVD-Ram rewriter.I've been burning DVD video discs of my image files of Movies for several months since I joined a newsgroup ;-) . The discs normally took about ten minutes to burn a full DVD -video_Over the last couple of weeks its slowed down to taking about an hour !!! Iused to get a write speed of 8x but now its about 1x, I'm still using the same DVD media disks as before, I've even tried using different media but still the write speed is 1x. I've also tried changing my burning software but again with no speed increase. I'm using the latest firmware for my re-writer. Can anyone suggest what might be going on. Any help would be mighty useful. In hardware manager it says my driver is supplied by Microsoft , is that correct?

Hi there,

Are you burning the DVD's on the fly? Have you got enough free space on your hard drive? I know from past experiences that when burning DVD's that software can create very large temporary files and can fill up your hard disk.

There is a drive test built into Nero maybe try that also there might be some new firware on the manufacture's website you can use to upgrade.

Hope that helps.

Try reading the section entitled "Alternative Method - uninstalling the port". Worked for me _http://winhlp.com/WxDMA.htm
