I have been able to download movies on to my hardmdrive using dvd shrink with anydvd running in the background. I am also using Nero as my burning program. The dvd burner is the one that came with my HP Pavilion. It is supposed to be a 16 speed burner but when set to max. it will only burn at 4 speed. It takes almost 30 min. to burn a disk. My friend has a 16 speed burner w/ nero and can burn the same disk in about 6 to 7 min. Using Sony and Maxell DVD -R disk. Any help in speeding up the burning process?
