Write Speed Soooooooooo Slow


Sodiesarin

Question

I am burning a 4 gig data DVD but Roxio 10 will only let it burn @ .80 !

therefore, it is taking about 40 min for this 4 gig data DVD.

The speed of my discs are +R 16x, the speed of my DVD drive is 18x

What am I doing wrong??

I also put the selection on RAW now and that didn't help.

Lastly, to burn a movie took 4 hours! It was initially in

avi format. Please help me

What burner do you have? What brand/type of media are you using? Have you updated the firmware for your burner? Is it running in DMA mode or PIO mode? What program, in the suite, are you using to burn?

What burner do you have? What brand/type of media are you using? Have you updated the firmware for your burner? Is it running in DMA mode or PIO mode? What program, in the suite, are you using to burn?

 

The Burner Is:

 

The LG GSA-H54NK 18X Super Multi drive

reads and writes most DVD formats, and brings you dual-layer capability and LG build-quality. The drive connects via ATAPI/EIDE, and supports Windows 2000, ME, XP, and Vista. In dual-layer mode, you'll be able to write 8.5 GB of data to one dual-layer DVD, in DVD±R mode, you'll get 18X write speed, 48X reading in CD-ROM mode.

 

Firmware:

 

I cant update the firm ware becuase it seems that since its an oem, there isnt ANY available...I have cheked for 2 days and there is nothing.

Media:

 

FugiFilm DVD+R RW 16 X

 

I have 3 The primary IDE:

 

The first primary IDE is set:

DEVICE 0:

Trans Mode: DMA when available

Current transfer mode: not applicable

DEVICE 1: not applicable.

 

The second primary IDE is set:

DEVICE 0:

Trans mode:DMA when available

Current transfer mode: Ultra DMA mode 5.

DEVICE 1:Not applicable

 

The Third primary IDE:

Device 0: Trans mode:DMA when available

Current transfer mode: PIO mode

Device 1: Not applicable

 

~~~I unistalled the third, (PIO one)so to get rid of the PIO but XP didnt

recognize it after I rebooted, I then had to use a retstore point.~~~

 

Secondary IDE 3 of them too:

 

First one:

Device: 0 Trans mode: Not applicable

 

Second one:

Device 0:Current Trans: Ultra DMA mode 5

 

Third one:

Device 0: Current Trans: not applicable

You can't burn a data disc using My DVD, use Creator Classic.

 

The time for the movie to burn includes the time for that AVI file to be encoded to a DVD compatible format (mpg2) and to burn to the disc. Encoding is CPU dependent. Figure 2 to 4 times the length of the movie to encode. More if you don't have a really fast computer or is a laptop.

 

How long was the movie?

The Ultra DMA Mode 5 is your hard drive. The PIO mode is your burner, if you have nothing else connected to your computer. If your burner is PIO mode, therein is your problem. If you deleted it, rebooted, and Windows didn't find it, your best bet is to open your computer, pull it out, deposit it in the nearest trash can, and install a new burner.

 

 

Can you suggest a reliable burner with firmware included?? Thank you

I would go over #3, #4, and #5 in my signature, before throwing your drive away. At what X speed are you burning your FugiFilm DVD+R media at? I always blame the media first!

 

cd

 

The LG burns at 16X normally, The Fuji is also (CD -R) burns like this.

I burnt some Data and it burned 16X but the last movie burned @ 8X

the hook up of the LG DVD ROM is: ATAPI / EIDE if that helps

Oh, I understand now, that is why you have all those links in your reply..

May I ask, could it be that the CD drive isnt DMA capable and PIO

is its only option??

No.

The stepping down from DMA to PIO is errors, I think it's your media. Read the links and set the burn speed down to 4x. Better yet try some Verbatim media.

Sodiesarin,

 

go read the links, I can't fix your machine from here! :) You have to do that.

Thank you for your troubles.. I am already looking

at what you supplied me with; maybe there is

an answer within, even if not, I learn a lot when I troubleshoot.
