Burning a movie DVD now takes between 1 and 2 hours, averaging about 1 1/2 hours. Before I began having this problem, burning took about 20 to 30 minutes. I also notice that my icons take a while to all show up when I turn on my computer, and the Windows\Systems32 Director always pops up when I turn on the computer. It takes a little while for it to pop up, and I can't access any software until it appears. This may be unrelated, but it seemed to start happening about the same time that I began getting the 1 - 2 hour burning times. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I have a Dell 8400 computer with 1 Gig of memory.
