    DVD-R burning more then 1 hour! Super slow Burning DVD-R


    Hi

    I would be gratefull for help, just a week or two my inside and outside (USB) recorders started to work extremly slow.
    Using Nero 14 i can see the real recording speed 800 - 1 500 kB/s when using 16x (22 160 kB/S). My usb samsung blu-ray recorder also work very slow - data fo 25 Gb disc takes about 4 hours.
    It is a new machine, 16 Gb RAM, 3770K on board so it is a fast one but recording...
    I tried deinstaling IDE i decice manager.
    I tried Ashampoo, CDburnerXP - all the same.
    During recording HDD 0 (c shows 1% usage.
    No software in background - just Kaspersky

    DVD and Blu-ray have no errors - veryfication ok, surface test also - only very slow.
    Tested media: TDK, Sony, Panasonic (all 16x for dvd and 6x for blu-ray)

    Please help

    Look in Device Manager. Right click on the burners and see if DMA is enabled. Usually when super slow kicks in it's because somehow this setting gets changed to disabled.

    Turn Direct Memory Access (DMA) on or off - Microsoft Windows Help

    The instructions are for Windows 7 but once you get to Device Manager I'd bet it's the same.

    In W8 the quick way to Device Manager is hit Winkey-x then m.

    Do you have InCD installed? It's notorious for causing erratic behavior. People doing serious video encoding remove it first thing, if they run Nero at all. It's not a knock. Most people start with Nero, including me. But there comes a point when you want more control and less "kitchen sink" running. And weird things tend to happen.

    The best single resource I know for burning/encoding/playing both hw and sw is

    I don't have inCd (I can't see it in installed programs) - there was a trial of PowerCD (it was mounting a phantom CD drive for my HDD so i deinstalled it)
    I also deinstalled nero 14 platinium, cdburnxp and then installed again nero, with ashampoo free for tests. I use recorders for backup mostly.

    When i used double usb cable for external samsung it was recording a little faster - could it be a problem with power (like setting external usb discs to sleep when nonactive?)

    cyborg66 wrote "i just put the burner onto a raid port and works fine now" could it be a solution? if so how to do it?
    and what about external drive?

    Yeah, I didn't get the bit about USB. Never used 'em so don't know how much help I can be there. The videohelp forums have some hard core aficionados though. btw what's with DVD-R ?? I know they sell 'em cheaper but I thought all the new machines were more compatible to burning DVD+R.

    Do you have InCD driver installed? I'm serious. Most video boards if you have it on they won't bother answering your questions because most of the time InCD is the culprit.
