I also posted this in the general dvd burner forum. If that’s a forum “no-no”, I’m really sorry. I don’t mean to spam the forum. Please forgive me.
Anyways, I have an LG-GSA-E60L Super Multi DVDÂ±RW USB 2.0 External Drive.
I AM A COMPLETE NEWBIE!
And, I am such a newbie, that the other forums haven’t helped me because I don’t quite understand all of it.
I’m trying to copy some of my dvds. I’m using this burner with the most updated firmware. My disks are 16X. It is taking me about 2 hours to burn a dvd. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong or what I have to adjust. I’ve turned off my firewall protection, anti-virus programs, and I’ve unchecked all my visual settings, too. My IDE controllers are set correctly on DME (is that what they were called? Whatever it is, I’ve checked that and they’re set on enabled).
The copying time isn’t too bad-- maybe about 20 minutes or a little longer. But, the writing time is excruciatingly long. . . .up to 1.5-2 hours.
Someone wrote something about BIOS and how he had to check his to make sure it was set as AUTO. I don’t know how to do this, so I haven’t checked that.
Also, someone in another thread asked something about master/slave. I have no idea what this is either (well, related to computers and controllers, etc.). . . so I don’t know how to check this out.
Please help. This is so incredibly slow, I don’t know what I should do.
Thanks, in advance!
