Question about Sony DW-G120A DVD RW Dual Layer Burner

Sony DW-G120A DVD RW works very slowly with my new computer

Just got an Intel Core 2 Quad which is working well but the Sony DW-G120A DVD RW burns very very slowly. It took more than half an hour to burn 1GB and verify the data. Used 3 different burning programs but the same problem. Even copying files from this drive to the computer takes a long time.

I had a similar problem and fixed it by buying a £10 external USB enclosure, ripping the drive out of the computer and putting it into the enclosure.

Hi,
Are you running this as an IDE Or Sata device.
If it,s IDE Try using an 80 Strand Cable, if your using a 40.
Also do away with the verifying the data.
This will reduce the speed by half, verifying the data is as good as writing twice.

CDBurnerXP is a good, free disc burning program that can do what you need. Rather than try to duplicate the information here, I'll just say that help is here on their website that explains how to use the program. It's quite simple, though. You just drag-and-drop the files you want to burn to the program's layout window, and when you're done adding files you click the "burn" button.

Burns very slowly and plays back slowly and with interference


Could be a couple of things. 1 the software that works the drive could be playing up, but 2 more likely that the drive itself is on its last legs.
These bare drives are now so cheap that I would just replace it and see what happens when you put the new on in.
You don't have to replace like for like, juts choose one you fancy.

U can use nero, first of all you must format de DVD-RW, so that it can be be rewritable. Then use it like a normar DVD-R disk. And every time you want to rewrite the DVD only make a quickformat and put your things on the DVD.
