Really slow image file burn (program problem), Nero 6

Hi Everyone,

This is my first post. WOW, there are a lot of threads here!

I searched as best I could through the threads, but was unable to find one that desribed my problem. Here goes…

I recently reformatted a brand new harddrive, and installed Nero 6. When I went to burn an audio CD, it took a LONG time. So then I tried just burning to an image file. It still takes a LONG time. For example: I left it running overnight, and it was only 35% done in the morning.

I have always used Nero 6 to burn audio CDs before I reformatted my computer, and it was always quite fast.

I have tried scanning for viruses and spyware.

DMA is on for all the drive partitions.

Thanks in advance to all the experts out there,


Enable DMA mode for the burner.

also for the HDD :wink:

Thanks guys. But DMA is on for the CD burner AND the harddrives.
I don’t think it is a burner problem, since I still have the problem when I just try to burn to an image file.



Please, is there anyone else out there with any helpful advice?
