Hi all, i am new to the forum & new to DVD burning so I'm afraid I won't be very good at explainig this but please be patient!
i have recently bought an LG-4161b DVD Burner and at first I made several coasters burning both CD & DVD disks, but this was rectified after I pulled out all my USB plugs & shut everything down that was running in the background. I then satrted having serious problems again when I loaded some Nokia phone software that I eventually uninstalled. But problem persists, it takes well over half an hour to burn a CD & 2h 15m to burn a DVD! I am using Nero Ultra 126.96.36.199 & when I burn a cd it is at 40x & DVD at 8x.
I have tried doing a system restore with no effect & have also uninstalled & re-installed Nero, again with no effect.
Here is my System:
CPU: AMD Athlon 1.2GHz
Bus Speed: 100MHz
Bios: Award 6.00 PG
OS: Win XP Pro + Service pack 1
DirectX: System suite says 8.0 but i'm sure I installed 9.0b! How do i find out?
Motherboard: Chaintech CT-7AJA
I usually load the nero ASPI when burning which is: WNAASPI32.DLL v188.8.131.52
I have also put the LG in a very similar computer & I got 2 DVD coasters then I loaded the nero ASPI and the 3rd DVD buned ok in apprx 12 mins.
DVD disks I have been using are 'Samsung DVD+R 4x' & 'Infiniti DVD+R 8x'
So, does anyone know why it takes over 2 hours to burn a DVD at 8x? Any info much appreciated.
