A friend of mine is having trouble copying a dvd from one drive to the next. Don’t worry, it’s not a copy protected movie or anything of that sorts. Anyways, he put the dvd into his dvd-rom and a blank Verbatim dvd-r into his burner. He tried to use Nero Express to copy directly from one drive to the next. When the burn started, it indicated it was going to take 1 hour and 2 min to burn. I had just done the exact same thing on my computer with the exact same dvd and it took about 12 min. What could be causing the burn time to take so long?
His drives are a Sony DRU-830A and a Memorex dvd-rom reader using ide connections. He built this computer about 4 years ago using an ASUS motherboard P4VT-MX and has 1G of memory. His processor is a P4 2.8 GHz. His was using Nero 7 Premium.
Something else, he mentioned that when he tries to play a dvd in either drive, he gets no sound during playback, but, has video. It doesn’t matter if it’s a movie he bought or one made of his kids birthday party.
I’m sure he’d appreciate any thoughts that could point him the right direction to solving his problem. Thanks!
