What hard drive do you have? It is a potential bottleneck, especially if there are hard drive intensive background tasks like a virus scan going on, you also may have encountered an issue from your limited ram as it cant load most of the data onto the ram and must keep waiting on the hard drive. What speed did you burn it at? At 1x it will take about an hour to burn a complete DVD.
i have a western digital 16mb sata 500gb which i bought new
no background task
ram: i dont think so, 1 gb should be enough.....i burnt at 22x
i did not try a different media, i will do that now....coz i had a 100dvd pack..... no did not update the firmware....any guidelines on how to do that will be appreciated! yes i did check in the device manager!
