Hello! I’m new to the forum, but have been reading over the DVD copying threads. I just got a new DVD burner and it is really slow. Hopefully someone can tell me what I am doing wrong.
DVD Drive: LG GSA-2166D connected by USB
Iomega 250 Hard drive for the images (also USB)
Software: AnyDVD, Nero that came packaged with the burner.
Media: 8x Sony DVD-R
To rip a 2 hour movie it took 2 hours and it is taking 2 hours to burn the files to the DVD. The progress bar started out saying 8 minutes required, but it wasn’t done, and the timer just kept going… I saw other fourm users saying they got moves ripped and burned in 20-30 minutes total.
Is this because it’s going over the USB?
Also, the burner is making a burnt plastic smell. Any ideas?
Thanks very much in advance.
