    How long should it take to burn an Mpeg (800MB) to 4.7gb DVD? It takes me about 12 hours which can't be right! Also what could I be doing wrong?

    Cheers!

    Not sure really, I've got an Intel celeron processor, 256 RAM, 17GB Hard drive with about 6GB Free. Is this fast??! (Don't think so)

    I know my RAM is at max for my pc at 256MB. I'll check the four hours as I left it overnight and it said 4 hours but not sure it may have been quicker. Thanks for all your help so far!
