When I first started making backups of my movies it was a somewhat fast process (1-2min to open, encrypt @ 2700kb/sec, burn at 8X), now I have burned about 8 DVD’s and it has gone down to (5-6min to open, encrypt @ 1200kb/sec, burn at 1.4X max). I have no idea what happened, same everything. When writing to DVD the BUFFER remains at 99-100% while the DEVICE BUFFER is going crazy and changing from 0-100% every few seconds. When the system was fast the BUFFER would also move around trying to keep up. What does that mean? So anyways, I went to a windows restore point on my computer, back to about my 4th DVD and my performance jumped up to around (2-3min, 2300kb/sec, 6X). I have an AMD 2600, 512Ram, Pioneer Burner, 120GB HD partitioned into 3 drives. I have Shrink and Decrypter on my C drive, but I save the movies on my D drive. Any suggestions?
