When I put the blank disk in right before encoding,
I do hold the eject button till it flashes 3 x..
I do remember when I burned the 1st couple movies It was slow as hell till I looked at"burn settings" in decrypt and saw that max burning speed was low numbers and 16x wasn't even showing up.
That's when someone told me to re-boot the 716A or hold the eject button.
The max speed of 16 would magically appear as it should have the 1st time so it burns at 22,000 kbs or k something.
Also using good media so I assume that helps it along.
Actually, I should correct the burn time as 4- 6 minutes.
I just burned a Ben Kingsley movie called Sexy Beast as follows:
Dycrypt time= 6min/47 seconds
Shrink time: 3:00
Burn time- 5min/11 seconds.
The movie must not have a lot of extras because the
shrink/dycrypt was extra fast even for me but the burn time seems to be always consistent no matter what size the movie is.
