I have to make this a very quick question:
I've burned about 300 dvds with my dell laptop. I have a sony dvd-r that was installed by dell. I'm using nero burning rom 6. About 2 weeks ago my system slowed to a crawl.
I can burn a cd at what appears to be normal speed, but when I burn files to dvd using nero it takes almost always 75 minutes to burn a 2 hour DVD. I can burn at 2x, 4x, 6x, no matter what, these are the results I get. I purchased Taiyo Yuden 8x dvd blanks exclusively. I can't say which batch of dvds is causing the problem right now.
I ran Nero's cd-dvd speed and with a movie cd in the drive got a result of 0.92x. With a cd in the drive I got 8x as results.
I'm new to troubleshooting this, any tips would be helpful.
