Burner problem leaves Tech Support Stumped

Please help. I am ready to die.

I just built a new computer:

Asus P8z68 Mobo
8Gb Gskill Ripjaw RAM
Seagate 7200 RPM 6.0 gbps Harddrive
EVGA Nvdia GTS 450

My problem has to do with my Blu Ray Burner. On my old system, I could burn a full Blu-Ray disc in 30 mins. On the machine above, it takes 1 hour and 40 minutes (without fail) to burn half a Blu Ray disc! I have a Liton Blu-Ray burner.

I have checked to make sure that DMA is enabled, I reinstalled windows, changed SATA configuration to IDE instead of AHCI, updated firmware in my Mobo and Burner, Tested my burner in my old computer (burns fast), I have changed the SATA Ports the drive is plugged into (it is plugged into the controller designated for optical drives), I have tried three separate batches of Blu-Ray discs (they work fine in my old computer), and updated all drivers.

I even bought a new LG burner and tried it. This one is detected, but it refused to burn. It would read just fine, but would not burn.

Does anyone have any idea what this could be? I've contacted tech support at Liteon, Asus, and Intel and none of them can help. If someone knows what this could be please tell me before I go insane.

I would first take a look at your flux capacitor, as it deteriorates it will indeed take longer. Im sure you can find a new one if you have friends in high places

What was your old system?

Were you running the same operating system?

The fact that the LG wouldn't burn sounds ominous.

My old system was a Core 2 Duo running Vista 32. My new build is an i7 with Windows 7-64. I've basically given up.

burning a blur ray to 25Gb in 30 minutes is nice but qan hour makes it sound like its dropped to 1x mode.

Have you tried different burning software?

^+1, also vista 32 vs win 7 64, id say a software issue. Maybe the software your using doesnt play nice with win7 64.
