I have a Lite-ON SOHW-1693S DVD Burner and some Memorex 16x DVD-R Discs, and when I burn anything at any speed, it always ends up taking about 45-60 mins for a full DVD. Could someone please help me?
Welcome to the forum. Your problem might be that dma is not enabled. Here is an explanation: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showpost.php?p=1532580&postcount=7
Also I would recommend not spending any more money on Memorex, it is a bit of a crapshoot. Stick with Verbatim, Sony, or media made in Japan.
I tried uninstalling and changing to DMA but it always stays in PIO, it won’t change!
This might be a basic question, but you are restarting the pc after uninstalling right? That is neccessary. I also found this thread, but I have always been successful with deleting or uninstalling the channel, but you might want to give this a read: http://www.cdrlabs.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=6645
Otherwise give it a bit of time, and someone will offer more help.
Check these first:
- Make sure your writer is in DMA position if in PIO return it to DMA.
- Try to defrag your hard dive
- make sure you have always at least twice of DVD movie size you are trying to burn free space in your hard drive.
