I've just built myself a shiny new PC (3Ghz dual core, Liteon 20x DVD writer etc.) so I can edit HD home videos. The long term goal is to put them onto HD-DVD / Bluray, but for the time being I just want to make some nice DVDs for family etc.
So I'm surprised that my current project (2.1 Gb) is taking over 24 hours to burn using Sony DVD Architect, is this normal? I'm an experienced PC user, but this is my real experience of burning DVD Video so it could be I'm just being optimistic.
Some notes that might help analysis (assuming this thing is running slow):
- The project was previously saved to hard disc, using MPEG2 / 5.1 Audio (AC3 file) and no re-compression was needed, so I assume it's just the burn that's taking the time.
- I double checked that the CD Writer is DMA enabled
- Er.. I should point out that I am running Vista which is causing me other problems (keeps breaking my NVIDIA RAID driver), so I guess this may be a contributing factor
Hmm DVD Architect has re-estimated my burn time upwards to 30 hours since I accessed this forum, guess I should have just left DVD Architect running on it's own...... ah well.
