    I have gotten tired of buying hard drives. I have 280gb of movies, but I hate to delete them and my CD burned ones won't run on DVD. So I bought a DVD burner and installed it yesterday. Shit is it slow. One smallish movie and encoding is only at 50% after 55 minutes. Not even started to burn. I'm using Nero Express. I called TDK and he heard that I was one of those horrible people illegally stealing movies and hung up on me. Anybody on this forum have any good ideas. Oh I'm running a 1.8ghz p4 with 256 mb and nero is using 98% of my resources.

    dvd burning technology is still relatively new so you'll just have to live with it

    i remember my first cd-rw burner is so shitty 2X2X16X, 80 percent of cds i burn failed.

    but then as time progressed, price of cdrw dropped and they make better and better cdrws.

    now i am happy

    just stick with the cdrw until they make better dvdrws

    BTW that was stupid of you to phone. I knew what their reaction would be lol

    stupid noobs, but it's ok you'll learn

    ok, i think you're complaining about the wrong thing. the BURNER encodes ZILCH. if it's encoding too slow for your tastes, get a new PC.

    the burner has nothing to do with encoding speed. thank you, come again!

    I was one of those horrible people illegally stealing movies and hung up on me.

    WTF man!!!! they are there to offer you support for their products not to bad mouth anyone. NO MATTER WHAT!!!

    If you remember the guys name that answered the phone you should ring them up again and complain about him.

    Maybe they should go back into training on how to deal with customers.

    BTW look for a better movie to encode your movies.

    I read somewhere to burn a full 4.7gb dvd disk should take around 15 minutes. I dont know if its true or not but if it is, i might get one.

    15 minutes if you use a 4X burner and 4X discs. 30 minutes for 2X, and about an hour for 1X. even if you're cheap and only buy 1X discs, burning 4.37gb per hour is still not terrible.
