When burning copies of my wedding DVD for my family using Nero 7 and 9 I noticed when using my desktop that the time taken between “Caching of files started” and “Caching of files complete” is virtually instantaneous. When I try to do the same on my Macbook Pro using VMware Fusion 2.0 on a Windows XP image it takes up to 9 minutes from when you see “Caching of files started” until you see “Caching of files complete” and the actual burning to DVD begins.
Everything is working fine with no errors except it is just taking far too long to complete caching. What takes 5 minutes total on my desktop take upto 14 minutes on the laptop. The laptop is mobile and so easier to move around so I would prefer to use that.
My MBP has Duo Core CPU and 4GB RAM of which the fusion is using 2GB and 1 of the CPU cores. I have tried changing these settings using both cores of the CPU and increasing the RAM to no success.
I’m using my LG external USB DVD writer on both. Is there a setting I am missing?
