Hi, thanks for the info. I changed the write setting in DVDFab from "Recommended" to 8X. It worked at the speed it should during the first phase of copying from the hard drive to DVD (using DVDFab). That is to say when it copied from the hard drive "Main Movie" Folder to the "Temp" Folder. However, when it moved to the next phase, copying from the "Temp" Folder to the actual blank TDK 16X DVD-R, the write process slowed down to 1X as before. I have set DVDFab back to the "Recommended" setting as the change did not seem to work.
I tried to check and see if my DVD burner is in Ultra DMA Mode 4, but don't have a clue as to how to do that so any guidance would be greatly appreciated. When I did check its "Information" I did notice the notation "Write Strategy TAO, SAO, RAW, RAW-MS" if that means anything. The DVD drive is a TSST CorpCD/DVDW TS-H652L Light Scribe internal DVD drive.
Remember, both DVDFab (latest version) and Roxio Creator 9 worked perfectly at the proper burn speeds until two days ago. Is it possible the original movie DVDs have something in them to cause this?
