I just bought a USB External/GE24 Super Multi Rewriter, with 24x speed. my problem is, when it burns, it burns EXTREMELY slow. I used to have an 8x burner, that would burn in about 5 minutes, and this one...


Hello mklvon,
Welcome to FixYa.Com!
I would like to recommend that you first take a look at your computer. Check if you have a USB 2.0 High Speed port. Reason is because although you have a USB 2.0 Ext Multi-Burner but your connecting it to a USB 1.0 or USB 1.1 port, the Multi-Burner will only run as fast as the USB port can transfer data.
Another time I would like to recommend is for you to take a look at the USB cable itself. As it is an Ext. Multi-Burner it may require a power USB port w/c is the reason why most Ext. Burner's have a Y-connector that is one USB port on one side and the other side branches off to 2 USB ports as it required extra power. If it is, you may want to consider your options as to getting a powered USB port.
And lastly, I would recommend that you take a look at the type of discs you are burning on to. Not all DVD R are the same. Whilst some have 24x speed some can have 4x speeds which can also affect the burn speeds.
Regards,

My dvdr/rw wont burn dvds properly


There are many reason for this.Try following steps to look out for solution.

1>Use better quality Dvd to burn .DVDs are just a few cents worth of plastic, manufactured in massive quantities. Sometimes you end up with a bad disk or a bad batch. Try a new disk, or a whole new brand, and you may have more luck burning your DVDs

2>Dust in your DVD burner can prevent it from burning DVDs correctly. Buy a lens cleaning disk and use it in your DVD burner drive. This can clean things up and give you a clean, successful burn.

3>For better quality burn at slow speed.It’s always tempting to burn DVDs at the highest speed possible. In theory, you’ll save time and can get more DVDs burned. In practice, though, higher speeds can result in unreliable burns.
Slow things down and set your DVDs to burn at 4x or even 2x. This may eliminate errors.
I hope this will solve your problem.

Low burn speed


I had the same problem before upgrading my RAM. Seems video burning software like nero are RAM hogs; if you do not have a large amount of RAM then it slowers the burning speed down to a crawl.[ BTW I didn't get maximum burning speeds using nero on a Windows Vista computer until I upgraded to 2 GB RAM] Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer.

Hey there dhruvr, your problem is minor. Even though your DVD drive has max speed of 16X, the software you use to burn can vary this according to their default setting. ranging from 4-16 times. You can change these by opening the extra option boxes, when you are burning, or going into the settings for each of your burning programs. You should only have to do this once. It will remember your last setting. Good Luck!

Writing to DVD takes excessive amount of time


The problem is that you might not have sufficient memory. Try burning @ 8x. Burning DVDs at 16x is a speed higher than the speed @ which file transfer takes place within the pc. So the lack of availability of memory slows down the proces. I once had the same problem.

I hope u find it helpful sir...

you could do it, dont think it will make any difference to you though, if you have a slow pc it can affect copy speed, adding more ram can also improve time if you have less than 256mb, also the program i use is have nero installed but use a program called DVD Shrink which is a free program if you search on google.com. and maybe try burning using faster dvd discs, usually about 15-20 mins to burn a dvd but depends on the speed of drive and discs. hope it helps John

DVD - Slow burning speeds


Unlikely that there is a problem with the drive itself, most likely cause is software settings - which burning software are you using? if it is nero 6 then once you click burn after arranging the files for burning, the burn info page should pop up. click on the burn tab and make sure that "determine maximum speed" is checked and that write speed is set to maximum. hopefully this should solve it, if not try setting write speed to one of the slower settings listed and see if you get a better result. Sometimes dvd drives can slow right down when you are trying to push them to go at maximum. if you want to check what it should be able to do, try http://www.pcpro.co.uk/reviews/87363/sony-dru820a.html also worth trying is updating the drivers http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/FIRMWARE/Sony/Sony-DRU-820A-10b.shtml to make sure you have the most recent version. Another thing worth trying if you haven't already is try a different brand or type of disc - just occasionally there can be clashes with certain types and burners - if this seems to solve it, don't throw your pack of discs away, give them to someone with a different burner. The final possibility is a power supply problem. If your PC's power supply unit has spare connectors for a drive then try a different one - possibly your supply doesn't have enough guts to run a more modern drive - take the drive out and try it in another pc with a higher power supply wattage rating. Hope this helps :)
