[QUOTE=swolfer;2228307]I am trying to burn a movie to DVD from avi file and it is taking forever. So far it’s been 14 hours and not even halfway through.
Not sure what info you need but am using:
Dell Dimension 1100 - Intel Celeron processor 2.53 ghz
DVD Burner - Sony DRX-840U
Pinnacle Studio 10 for encoding and burning
Memorex DVD - DVD+R-DL 8.5 gb 2.4x
Should it be taking this long? Have burned other movies before (not this long and on DVD-R 4.7 gx 16x and two hour movie took about eight hours.[/QUOTE]
Are you talking about encoding and burning together or just burning?
For encoding, times are about OK for your processor, but burning to disc itself should not take longer than about 20-30 minutes at worse case, that include verification.
Is your burner set to DMA?
