DVD Speed Problem

Recommended Posts

I have an internal LG DVD Burner (in addition to an external). The internal burner is acting wierd and i'm not sure why. I burn DL DVD's and the speed seems to be inaccurate. First, I used a "2.4 X" disc and it indicated that it was burning at "4X"...which is impossible and inaccurate due to the fact that the 6 Gig movie to about 90 minutes. I use Nero and "2.4X" wasnt even listed as an option. Then I bought the "8x" discs and tried burning with them. It said it was burning at "8x" but it again to 90 minutes. My external is only capable of burning at 2.4 so i'd like to find out whats wrong with my internal? Any Help is greatly appreciated!

whats the speed of your DVD writer [not the discs]?

have you set the speed the writer should use when burning a specific media?

if your dvd writer is only supporting 4x speed then an 8x dvd -r/+r will only use the maximum of 4x speed of the dvd writer!

also check if your firmware is updated.

if its updated I suspect that this is an issue caused by DMA not being enabled. This means the device runs in PIO mode which would give you about 4x speed. Also CD burn speed would be restricted.
