Question about ASUS DVD-ROM |DVD-E616A2 BG R DVD Drive
Why can I only burn around 20 minutes of mp4 video to a normal DVD-R disc when the blurb that came with disc tells me I can record around 200 minutes!
I'm new to all this, so please excuse my ignorance.
Hi, You need one program called dvd creator to help you in order to burn mp4 files to dvd.
Try to download this Blu-ray Creator to have a try. It allows you burn video to DVD.

Hope this can help you.

I burn DVD with Wondershare Video to DVD Burner , which is a fast video-editing and DVD-authoring application. In just five steps, you can easily convert and burn all popular video files (AVI, MP4, MPG, MPEG, 3GP, WMV, ASF, RM, RMVB, DAT, MOV ) to DVD for backup and enhancement.

Hi Peter ,
You are confusing the amount of recording time stated (200 mins) with the disk blurb (I like that word blurb...lol.. ) with the actual amount of data you are trying to burn to the DVD !
If your MP4 movie is super high quality or high definition and is 4.7 Gigabytes and 20 minutes long , your DVD-R will only store that amount of data and no more.
The capacity of most DVD-R's is about 4.7 Gigabytes or 120 minutes ? it might say it can store 200 minutes , but this is only a guide and depends entirely on what quality the movie is and what compression technique was used to produce the mp4.
If this isnt the case and you are sure its no more than 4.7GB and your still having trouble burning over 20 minutes of video, the drive could be faulty or the software your using to burn the DVD -R isnt set up correctly , you need a very big hard drive to burn DVD's (I suggest at least 160 GB ) and as much RAM memory as you can afford to put in your computer.
You need this to cache (or temporarily store) the movie file and the software has to be set up properly to use a large cache.Not all DVD-R's do what they say on the case , most say they burn at 16X but ive yet to find a DVD-R that will burn every time and do a good job of it at 16X,I have to lower the burn speed to 8X or lower to get good consistent results...some cheap brands will burn in some drives and not others and buying really cheap DVD -R's is false economy you end up with lots of cheap drinks coasters...or other drives will not read the data you have recorded..
hope this has helped you Peter ..
