NEC 3500 and roxio Creator 7

So my first two burns using Roxio and an NEC 3500 took at least 1 hour to burn what I think is raw AVI footage from 1 hour captured on my Dig8 Camcorder. I tried downloading Nero off their website and using it to see if Roxio was the issue but (I’m prob being a moron) I don’t see a button for burning DVDs other than data discs on the demo version. Am I just using the wrong software? Anyone suggest a better suite to just burn basic DVDs?
