Using a PC with Windows 2K Professional, Nero 6.6, a Sony DRU530A burner, as well as the current DVDShrink software. I have made perhaps 3 dozen succesful burns over the past 6 months. Now, for some reason, both the Nero and DVDShrink, when invoked to burn a Video DVD, start the brun OK, but proceed to take a VERY long time to burn. In fact, I gave up the last try after letting it go 16 hours on a 3.3 gig set of files. (It got to 48% complete). After five attempts, I have five coasters. I've tried checking on whether DMA is enabled: it is. What else can I look at? As I said, everything used to work, now, it's all kaput! Any suggestions, pointers to other threads? TIA, __Ron R.
