    Is it still going through the process? Can you post your system specs? Are you using deep analysis and/or quality enhancements? Have you checked your ide settings?

    Well I beleive that it is your computer. I have a brand new top of the line dvd burner and when i run it on my older computer the whole burning process takes a very long time 2+ hours. Then I tried burning on my new Desktop, its a dell 2.0 ghz 60 gb hd and it takes about 20 minutes to backup a dvd. So i'd say its your computer speed so either buy a new somp or upgrade your old one.

    Hope this helps
