    If these aren't too obvious, I would say:

    1 - Use high quality media, rated for the speed at which you're burning.

    2 - Don't run any other apps while burning.

    Also, what are your system specs - eg, processor, RAM, etc? What kind of burner do you have? What specific problems are you having?

    The more information you provide, the better.

    I suppose the actual buring should only take around 15 minutes, though I think it depends on your burner - despite it's rated speed, which is a theoretical value. For example, apparently my burner - a Pioneer DVR-108 - burns faster at 12x than at 16x.

    Is it just the burning that's taking 40 minutes, or the encoding and the burning? We could use some more info - are you ripping and burning DVDs? What are you using to rip? What are you using to encode? Do you have other programs running in the background while you're burning?
