I have been burning DVD’s and have always used Windows DVD maker. Recently the DVD maker encodes so slowly that I have to continually ‘cancel’ the burn.
I started the DVD Maker process again after disabling all of the codes or filters EXCEPT .avi.
Currently I am burning 2 x .avi files (215MB & 679MB) onto a 16 speed DVD-R 4.7GB disc (I’ve used these Maxwell discs before with no problems).
It has been burning now for over 12 hours and is still only on 17.5%.
This is a problem that has only just started. I have tried other discs to burn onto but with the same problem.
No other programs are running at the same time, CPU usage is at 4%, RAM at 47% & SWP at 0%. (This info is off my task bar).
I then went to the Windows Task Manager and changed the priority to high, and now my CPU is running at 100%. And the encoding has only increased from 17.5% to 17.9% in the last hour.
My system info is as follows:
Windows Vista Home (Service Pack 2)
Dell – Inspiron 530s
Rating – 4.0
Processor – Intel (R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E4500@2.20GHz 2.20GHz
Memory (RAM) – 3.00GB
System type – 32 bit Operating System
Hard Disc Drives (2) – C drive = 67.0GB free of 222GB
– 5.50GB free of 9.99GB
I hope that you have enough information here to help, I’m not a technical person myself, so I would really appreciate any help in ‘really basic’ speak.
Hope you can help.
