Normally the process takes less than 25 minutes on my current PC.
I built the PC Feb. 2009. I’m currently using two LiteOn iHAS120 DVD burners. I installed my older models in my kids’ PCs. I’m finding I have to reset DMA (more precisely I just reboot) every so often using these drives, when I rarely had a problem with my old ones. (LiteOn 815SX, LiteOn 1693S, and two LiteOn LH-20A1L drives). I might take the time to swap the 20A1Ls for these iHAS120s and see if that resolves the intermittent slow burns. Or maybe I should try DVDFab 5 a half dozen times or so, I don’t recall if I had this problem with any 5.x versions. I’m using Verbatim DVD+R 4.7GB media from newegg, though that isn’t an issue.
Just a few minutes ago the read was stuck at ~2.94MB/s. I reset DMA, but didn’t reboot as prompted, but restarted DVDFab, and now it’s humming right along. Total Time Elapsed 00:12:53, Task Time Left 00:03:58. I thought a reboot was required to reset a drive’s DMA, since I only restarted DVDFab, maybe it’s something else that’s causing the intermittent slow burns, or is a reboot not required?
I never leave DVDFab running when it’s in granny gear, usually stop the process, close the program and just reboot.
Current burn of my son’s Code Geass Vol3 disc (main movie) total time of 16:39. If I left it stuck reading @ 2.94MB/s, it’d be ridiculous!
