Burn Speed

Question

Good afternoon everyone,

Some advice and help required please. I successfully imported a 2. 5 hour VHS tape to Roxio DVD 3 Plus, was advised I had to choose the split option which I did and preceded to burn the first disc. 18 hours later my computer successfully completed the first disc. Did I do something wrong or should I expect the burn to take this long?

 

Thanks in advance

What format/resolution did you use when you imported the video? DVDs always have a mpg2 format.

 

Please post the Windows dxdiag.exe evaluation of your computer. The text file; not all the lines of text. Go here (link)

I ran into some difficulty testing today...

With a 2 1/2 hour file and using DL discs (8.5GB)it would burn the first disc but never finalize it, so I never could get to the next one. Tried it on different PC's & OS's but after the 6th disc I gave up.

Tried it with the 4.7 GB discs and it worked as it should.

Times, either disc, were under 10 minutes.

As Steve has hinted, either your PC is Very slow or you have taken a low resolution file and it is taking a lot of time trying to bring it up to DVD High Quality.

Get back to us with what Steve has ask and we can see what to go from there ;)

OK ~ I will run some more tests that I didn't get done yesterday.

 

Would you recall if you were using DL discs or regular?
