    You need to ensure that DMA mode is enabled. Sounds as if you are in PIO mode.

    Burning at 4X should take 13 to 15 minutes.

    DMA mode is not a setting in your video software. It's a method of information transfer to your drive. You have to go to your device manager in windows.

    i've been having the same problem. this is what i wrote the other day, didn't really get my question answered. i'm using copy & paste in the following, does anyone know the answer to this?>>>>>"one thing i dont get is in the ide 2ndary, there is also a box in the middle. it doesn't have a dropdown so it cant be changed.it say current transfer mode "pio". whats that all about. i changed everything i could to dma. i backed up my 1st movie today using DVD Decrypter & DVD Shrink. It came out great, but is it normal to take 2hrs to do. my computer told me the drives didn't need to be defragged, i use adware once a week. freed up a bunch of space cleaning out old programs. i'll take a look @ the task manager & see if i can see anything.
