Burning time using MYDVD Express

Question

I've just upgraded from EMC9 to 10 and although it works ok I seem to be taking a lot longer to convert and burn an mpg2 video to a dvd

When using 9 it took apprex 40 min fro an hours video but it has taken over 4 hours using MyDVD Express in EMC10. Has anyone any idea why this is or should I revert to EMC 9.

 

Spec.

1.87 gh intel core 2 duo

Motherboard Foxcom 946 7MA

 

hard

drive 500 GB with 270 free

40 minutes for 60 minutes of video is short but I would guess that the video was already a DVD compliant file. When it was encoding, did you see a gray preview screen? If so, the videos were not being re-encoded.

 

4 hours for an 60 minute video with your rig is a little long. What format was it; did you see the video in the preview screen? If so it was encoding perhaps for quality (bitrate) perhaps to fit on the disc?

 

Most people see a slight decrease in encoding time with EMC 10. What are you using the DVD Express? Do you see the same encoding time with My DVD?

I have unistalled emc10 and reinstalled it. Everything works ok apart the length of time it tales to burm a dvd. it takes about one hour to burn 10% of a i hour mpeg video.

I am recording a tv program using Microsoft Media Center which ceats a dvr-ms file which emc easily converts to mpeg2 proir to burnong to dvd. I previously used emc9 which took approx just over a hour to burn a 60 min video. At the moment this program is absolutely useless to me but I would really like to overcome this prblem, has anybody any ideas?

all comments would be gratefully recieved

Does that "over an hour" include the encoding time? If no, then that is a "fast" burn.

If from an mpeg file is that file completely DVD compliant? You will have to give some more information on what program in the suite you are using, are you doing any editing, etc.

just loading the recorded file into MYDVD express when prompted the program converts it to mpeg I then burn to dvd.This dvd is to my dvd player that I have also its ok on my sons player in America. I think the encoding is taking the time but on EMC 9 this didn't seem to be a problem, in fact the first time I used the new EMC10 the file took much the same time to burn as the previouse version 9 and no the times I am stating are from when I press the burn button

PAL vs NTSC ? Are you encoding PAL file to NTSC so it can be watched on a US DVD player? I'm not sure anyone has looked at how fast it does that along with the encoding to be DVD compliant.

Check and see if DMA is enabled in device manager, however the Hard Drive and Sony DVD Drive are connected. What are the current transfer modes?

I don't think it is anything to do with the actual burning of the disc , more a matter of the very slow encoding. When I first loaded emc10 everything worked ok with an encoding time similar to emc9 however after a short time I encountered this problem. I uninstalled 10 then reinstalled it. The actual program appears to be working satisfactory apart from this encoding problem. I havn't bothered to try the process through as it takes an hour to encode about 10% of a 60 minute video.

When encoding to NTSC or pal the time appears to be the same.

I.ve tried burning using Nero 8 with no problem, it's just that I prefered in the past using EMC and I don't like being beaten after paying out for the version 10..

today I tried burning 3 no. videos each about 900 gb to one dvd and no problems, took about 2 hours from start to finsh encoding from pal to ntsc format. I later tried burning a 2gb video, same old problen took about 1 hour to encod about 10%. I cant understand it, as all videos are from the same source ie Windows Media Center and exactly the same procedure is used to make dvd EMC10. Help

I have noticed that if when encoding, a grey screen with the logo MPEG appears in the small screen the encoding appears to be quite good but, however, if the screen is showng the vidseo being recorded the encoding takes forever. this seems random. Is there any way to make the program run with this grey screen every time as the finished dvd is exellent?

The grey screen means that that portion of your production doesn't have to be re-encoded. When you see the video, in the preview, that means that portion is being encoded to make it DVD compliant.

Thanks for info although I don't understand what you mean by only some parts require encoding as t all the files come from the same source ie recorded tv programs using Microsoft media center and all of the same file type. Excuse me if I sound ignorant but my knowledge of how all this works is very vert limited

I assume that you did some editing? The program will have to re-encode around those cuts. No or fewer cuts, the faster.
