i recently purchased a nec nd-3550a dvd burner. i am using anydnd and clonedvd2 to make my backups. at first i was having dma issue but that was finally resolved. before it was taking 80 minutes to transcode and 40 minutes for the actual burn. (2 hours total) unexceptible. all it took was a little tweaking in bios to get it to change to dma mode. fixed. now it takes 20 minutes to transcode and 10 minutes to burn (same 8X media). 30 minutes total. i was looking around here and i noticed an advertisment for clonedvd2. 15 minutes per backup they say?! wow! i want mine to be like that. is there anyway i can improve the performance on my current setup? would firmware help? heres what i found that i thought might be what i’m looking for. any suggestion would be greatly appreaciated.
