Hi, just got myself a new 3500 burner. I am trying to burn a merged AVI file. It s a three disk compilation. I am using NERO 6 with the latest update ( reloaded or sumin?) I setup all my menus and stuff and merged the avi, got the the burn stage and set it to 8X rather than max. I am using RIDISK 8X -R the blue ones if it helps? I have a A64 3500+ Nforce 3 chipset, MSI NEO2 Plat, latest drivers. Win XP SP2 fully updated.
Now the problem, I selected burn ( which it is doing atm with no ability to abort :a ) I cant see the speed its burning at, I am using nerovision express 3. I updated the firmware to 2.17 before I tried anything btw. Anyway its taking nearly 2hrs to burn Obviously I have a setting wrong or sumin? It must be running @ 1X speed :Z

Yep, that data disc and transfer rate graph looks perfect!
2 hours to burn?
Nerovision express might be encoding the video and turning it into DVD compliant files before the burn. That could be why it’s taking so long.
What was the exact length of the entire operation?
It took 2.5 hours Yeah I think it might be to do with nero trying to encode it? Anyway I can avoid that and do a straight burn? I gotta go to sleep now, 4AM here lol, but please keep your replies coming I will be back tomoz to check
