Adding more memory will I benefit ?

My PC has a Pentium 4 3.4 GHZ,512MB PC3200 ram.I film weddings and put the wedding on to a DVD disc and need to make several copies of it,would adding another 512MB of ram make the copying process any faster.

No I do not

Sorry the cat decided to run over the keyboard:-)

It should read

No I do not think it would aid in the writing of the disk. This uses little memory. Try surfing the web, running a dvd film and burning a dvd disk at the same time. 512Mb of ram should accomplish this easy.

What it may aid is the rendering of the film ready for burning.

Sorry johnnyrocker but it I did not mean for that post to come up as it did. :-(

Personally FatboySlim71 I got a second 120 gig hard drive, to keep all my videos and backup pics. on, and stayed with 512Mb memory.

The DVD's max burn speed is the key limiting factor in the data I/O path.

But it won't hurt to help it all along with;
> defrag the HDD several times before you copy the video file over will ensure the data is written in contiguous pakages next to each other.
> storing the video on HDD and burn from the HDD to DVDs.
> mounting the DVD writer as the master on the IDE cable, ideally with no secondary device attached to the same IDE cable.
