I really hate to be one of these needy people who have a problem and whine about it but this is really frustrating me and this is my last step before i go out and buy a new dvd burner.
My dvd burner (I use dvd shrink for burning and VLC for playback) has all of a sudden slowed down. My playback visuals seem okay but the audio has a slight echo like i don’t have enough memory. I have watched plenty of movies before from DVD and never had a problem previously.
Next i tried to burn a DVD and it went up to 1 hour to just encode it let alone the writing process.
I have checked the other threads and have already done the following:
[li]Run Defrag[/li][li]Run anti spyware (which found a rather nasty file but didn’t improve my current problem)[/li][li]Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drive.[/li][li]DMA is enabled and was previously[/li][li]Using the same media as previously so that’s not the issue either.[/ul]Really stumped here and i’m afraid i have to get a new burner. Buying the new burner isn’t so bad but if i install it and then it still does this then i will be very, very unhappy( i may turn green and smash stuff).[/li]
ANywho, no idea why this happened all of a sudden as there was no new installations. Any help will be appreciatated.
P.s. also the CPU max’s out to 100% when burning if that helps anyones diagnosis.
