Help With Dvd Burner, Going really slow

I have a 8x dvd burner. Before it was going at 8x and when i burned a dvd it would take less than 5 minutes. Now for some reason, it goes really slow. It takes about 45 minutes. I didnt change the drive or anything. I tried uninstalling it but it was still slow. I tried buring with dvd shirk and nero and they both took really long. Someone please help.

Check DMA. http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=101616

Burning a full dvd at 8x would take 8 to 9½ min.

The DMA is enabled already. Also when i burn a dvd it takes about 45 minutes. Actually it is a cd-dvd burner. When i checked the speed of the dvd burner with nero, it goes only 4x, but when im burning i can choose 8x and it still goes really slow. Also when i burn a cd it starts out slow but it speeds up from 18x to about 40x.

Some one please help!!

What’s the brand, typenumber and firmware version of your burner.

Use Nero CD/DVD Speed and do a ‘Create Data Disc’. Post result.

Use DVDIdentifier to retreive dvd’s mediacode. Post result.

Remenber dma should be enabled for both harddisc and optical devices.

It’s is normal to start at 18x and end at 40x when burning a cd-r.

When i use nero cd/dvd speed, it only goes 4.01x. Also when im buring a dvd, the dvd burner starts to blink and it stays lighted up, like it always did but recently, it blinks on and on. It starts to blink then it stops and it starts again. Here is the mediacode.
