DVD Encoding decreased performance overnight..

    So I just bought a laptop, an HPzx5190us, has been running great, and I've been backing up my DVD's with it. The first 2 worked great, then I transfered my mp3 files on DVD and it worked fine for about the first 3 DVD's I used (dvd+r) the 4th mp3 disc i transfered kept running into a few cycle redundancy errors but I don't think that has anything to do with it. So anyways my actual problem, when I encode the DVD movie I want to backup, it runs at a disapointing 1900 kb/s and when I first used my DVD drive, it ran upwards of 4000 kb/s. What would be the cause of this decreased performance? my drive is a TOSHIBA ODD-DVD SD-R6252

    Hi,

    If your drive ran into a bunch of CRC's when doing the MP3 discs Windows may very well have kicked the transfer speed down to PIO.

    Try this:

    http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/device/storage/IDE-DMA.mspx

    If that doesn't work you can try these steps:

    Go to Device Manager >

    Expand the tree for Disk Drives >

    Find the drive in question, right click it and go to Properties >

    Under the Driver tab, select Uninstall then OK.

    Now reboot and Windows should detect and reinstall the drive.

    Let us know if this helps :)

    thanks a bunch, that pretty much got me on the right track, i had to uninstall the drive and also uninstall the secondary IDE , then reboot and now it is back to normal top notch encoding :)
