vbimport

#1

I am using AnyDVD + CloneDVD to backup by DVD and it is taking way too much time. Its taking @3 hrs only to read the DVD + time to write.
Am I doing anything wrong here?

How to Enable Direct Memory Access (DMA)


#4

Win2K Pro, Service Pack 4 with 256MB Ram
LG-4082B with A201 firmware.
Don’t know if DMA is enabled. Will have to check it when I get back home.

BTW, I tried DVDShrink and it took colse to 4 hrs to copy the DVD.

I’ve got a p-3 800 with my a06.it takes between 1h. to 1 1/2 h to comletely burn a dvd

It sound like it could be a drive issue.

  1. What CPU are you using?
  2. is the LG the only DVD drive you have?
  3. I guess by now, you will know if DMA is enabled
  4. You stated “3 hrs only to read the DVD + time to write.” how long does it take to write? and @ what speed do you set it?
  5. What speed DVD’s are you using?

3 - 4 hours is waaaaaaaay too long to burn a movie(especially to me it is)

@ alsho

have you ever heard of a site called http://www.powerleap.com ???
The reason I asked if you knew anything about Powerleap, is because I have another machine, that has a nice motherboard and memory and everything was nicely set-up but the motherboard could only take a P-3 700, but with this site, they were able to make a processor that took me to a Cele 1.5gig, and I didnt have to change my memory or anything else. it was a nice upgrade and didnt cost much.

CPU is P3-800, I have a CR-ROM beside the LG.
DMA was not enabled, so I enabled DMA and was able to read in little more than 1.5 hrs and burn in 1/2 hr. So it took me 2 hrs+ to burn a DVD. The burn speed was 4X and I am using memorex 4X media (tried both +R and -R).

I feel 2 hrs is still too much. What would be the ideal time be?

BTW, I was able to decrypt the DVD using DVDdecrypt in about 20 mins.

Glad to hear that you were able to set the DMA. actually thats a amazing time to decrypt with DVDdecrypt(20 mins) with a P3 800, thats about how long or less it takes me with a P4 3gig. You said it took 1/2 hour to burn @ 4X, 4X should only take 15 mintues to burn, that half hour it took you, was burning @ 2X. It sounds like you have the same CPU as alsho has and he stated that it takes him between 1h. to 1 1/2 hr to completely burn a dvd.


#9

Did you check for DMA on your hard drives also?


#10

…which could mean that DMA was not enabled properly.

Hi

Sorry to keep this topic dragging on but I’ve just spent a months wages on a brand new PC and it takes 4 times longer to burn a DVD than my old machine!!!

Specs:
P4 2.6GHz
512mb RAM
120gig HD
Toshiba SD-R5112 DVD-RW

I read a DVD in fine with Clone, but when I came to burn it, it took about an hour at 4x with 4x DVD-r’s. I also tried it with DVD Decrypter, same reult.

I downloaded Nero InfoTool and here are the results:

I have the latest firmware for the DVD-RW.

DMA is enabled on everything, but when checking this I noticed that I had a CD-ROM drive, and 2 identical DVD_ROM drives on my device manager which don’t exist.

Can someone please help me burn at 4x again!?!?!?!

Thank you in advance to anyone who can sort this.
