I have recently purchased a Pioneer 107D burner. I am using DVD shrink 3.1.3 to encode movies which then it automatically switches to use Nero 6 (also installed on the PC) to burn the DVD. The problem I am having is that the DVD encodes OK but when it swithces to Nero to burn it takes hours to burn. In some cases it has taken 8 hrs. I have a friend who uses these same programs with a different burner(older) and he can burn in about 30 mins maximum. My PC is a p4 2.8 with 512MB ram and is actually quicker than his.
The burner seems to burn other dvds such as PS2 games ok using alcohol120.These take about 15 mins and I only have the one drive. So I think the burner is OK. Is there a conflict between this burner and Nero when burning DVD movies or is it just a dud burner…any suggestions much appreciated…Thanks
Since this I have used a friends PC with the same burner Pioneer 107d and the same software, it worked fine. I then removed his burner (both bought at the same time, so they are both new) and installed it in mine. I still have the same problem…burning took 5 to 8 hours but on his it only took 30 mins. It therefore can,t be the burner itself…I am going to replace the IDE cable next…has anyone got any other ideas…Thanks
