DVD burner going slow
Posted on 2004-08-10
Ever since i put my DVD burner in my new computer it's been going really slow. It takes a good 40 min to rip a DVD and another 20 min to burn one. I had my burner in my friend's computer (2 GHz P4) and in my brother's computer (1.6 GHz Dell) and it only took about 20 min to rip a DVD and under 10 min to burn one. Any ideas why it might be goin so slow on my new computer? I use Nero to burn DVDs, and the Recorder Buffer Level keeps on fluctuating up and down.
The only difference i can think of from my computer to the other 2 is that mine is running windows 2k and their computers were running XP. Could this have an effect on it?
Specs of my new computer are single 2.66 GHz Xeon CPU, 512 MB Crucial RAM, WD 160 gig drive as main drive, WD 120 gig and Seagate 120 gig SATA drive.
It just doesn't make sense that it would burn slower on my more powerful machine.
