Can anyone help, I have a Compaq laptop with an Emperx external DVD player (16x speed) and when I try and back up DVD's using Nero it only burns at 1.3x. Its taking over 40 mins to burn 4GB worth of data! I have tried different types of media but all are the same. I really dont have a clue why it only burns at this speed. CD's work fine.. When I put a disc into nero, it say the burn speed will be (say 4x) and when i click onto burn it says it will only take 14mins to burn, then 40 mins later it finishes.!! The laptop does not have USB 2.0 ports, so I bought a USB 2.0 card to slot into the computer.. The burner is connected by USB 2.0. anyone have any ideas?
