Sumsung Cd rewritter SW-240B

  allclear 02:46 21 Sep 03

Recently on testing my Sumsung Cd rewritter It took me over 3 hours to burn a 650MB data and my pc slows down increadbly.

Not believing the speed of burning I took my Cd, for testing, to a friend's house, who has a similar spec of the rewriter, and on his machine it took just under 4 minutes!!!!

I have read the manual and checked all the configurations per the maual but in vain.

I was copying from DVD Rom to Cd rewriter. Could the DVD rom be faulty as well? as the DVD rom also causes slowness of the pc. If its a software conflict does anyone know how I can test this out please as I am a bit reluctant, at this stage, to reformat my hard drive.

Can anyone help?

Try copying the data to your hard drive first and then writing to CD rather than doing it "on the fly".

Pops Thanks but although I havent stated this I did also try copying the data to the harddrive which I had to abandon part way because the "estimated copying time" stated was over 1.5 hrs!!

What software are you using?

Were you copying from the DVD drive or from your Samsung?

I have tried using Neno software & Win xp burning facility.

Copying from DVD rom.

Try copying from the Samsung to hard drive then writing from hard drive afterwards.

Forget about using the DVD - this looks to be the bottleneck at the moment.

Just tried it. Message comes up "estimated time 47 minutes"

I am not sure whether its hardware or software problem. Any idea how I test software conflicts?

At what speed does Nero tell you it is reading/writing?

You do not say how big the File you are trying to copy
