Try using Alcohol 120% - it will give you an analysis of the actual speed you are burning the discs at. Also make sure the files you are burning are located on the same drive. Allowing the program to copy the files to your drive in one place can effect the speed as it can access the files faster than retreiving them from multiple hard drives or even one 52X Cd-Rom drive.
Your not alone....cept Im experiencing this problem with the initial read and write to the hard drive for the temp file before running it back to a dvdr disk. I uninstalled everything and reinstalled everything, tried one an 2 drives since your temp folder should be on a seperate drive then your os. Tried using just one dvdr and 1 hd both set as master on seperate channels too. Everything in my system is exactly the same as it was when I was getting 15 minutes reads. I tried hyperthreading off and on, adjusted various ram timings, tried different ram, updated dvdxcopy platinum, attenuated the psu in my sig to perfect voltage levels through the abit eq manager.
It does write the same movie at 13minutes though...just wont read to the drive at that speed anymore. All drives are really clean and practically empty...not to mention that I run defrag way more then neccessary......just cant figure it out?
And Im using the sony dru15a
Im with you on this one/ i first purchased my sony I was burning at 8x. 9 minutes a DVD!! All of the sudden
I am at 1.8x . I asked friends and here is what they told me. Change your DVD drive letter. I dont know why
. It didnt work for me. Change your hard drive letter. Dont know what that would do but windows error told me it couldnt do that. Go to Start, programs, accessories, system tools, then disc clean-up. Thats what Im about to do now. By the way it could get worse. My system is at the point were if i go online when Im burning my burn speed drops to 0.
There are a few things i can think of that may olternate the speeds of dvd burning. When your computer is new it is nice and clean free of junk correct? This means u dont have stuff running in the taskbar next to the clock. The programs in there are all running and can alter the way u burn dvd's. Another thing is the hard drive wrie rate. When you burn a dvd it puts an image on your harddrive first. The slower the write speed the longer it will take. And the last thing i can think of is the amount of takss your doing at the same time. I know I cant stand to sit there looking at grass grow so i browse web pages while waiting which slows down the burning taks.
Hope this helps, I havent really noticed my burning speeds going down, but then again i dont do alot of dvd burning.
