Slow Burn Speeds


Grooverider

Question

Does anyone know how to get Roxio to burn at speeds above 4x on a Pioneer 115 Dual Layer burner?

It only ever offers me the option of 1x, 2x, and 4x :(

 

I have checked for downloads and firmware etc and it all seems to be ok. Is this a restriction on the EMC software? Some scheme from Roxio to make me upgrade to Deluxe????

I am having slow burning issues on a 16x burner with the latest firmware. It won't go past 1.9x. I have Roxio Toast on my Mac G4 and it works suberbly at 16x EVERY TIME!

 

My advice: get a Mac and Roxio Toast

There's no ulterior motive here - in fact, the program simply takes the info supplied by the drive and uses that for the burn speed.

 

If you can, check your media using this and it will tell you what the drive is reporting

Easy there Groovy guy. LOL. You said it seems to be okay, but does the burner actually have the latest firware update?

 

What is the speed of the media you are using. The software will only burn at the fastest speed of what the DVD burner is telling it (software) can burn. Firware updates usually fix problems with media.

I found a firmware update for my burner and updated to it and got Roxio to burn at 8x on the disks I had but since then it has now dropped to a max of 4x again :(

This really is annoying as it already takes long enough to compile video, don't want to have the additional wait of the dvd burn being slow too :(

Anyone any ideas?

 

How does regular DVD recording function ? CD-R burning running at the usual speeds ? What's the CPU usage when burning ? What are your system specs ? Need input !

Actually, burning video productions, at the fastest rate of your media, is not a good idea. I rarely burn video productions faster than 8x. Some set top DVD players are fussy about what they will play, and I have seen that burning at lower speeds works best.

You also need to bear in mind that the way DVD programs work these days is that they get the info from the blank disc (type of media, write speed, etc) and if you put a 4x disc into a 16x burner, you will only get the 1,2 and 4x options - never higher.
