    Hi,
    I recently bought the LG DVD writer.I tried to write data DVD of about 1.7 GB for testing.I was successfully added the files and clicked burn.However it is taking long time,so I just cancelled the process and tried with just 700 MB and it has written successfully.I noticed that it first caches the file and then writes on to the DVD.

    Is there any thing to do avoiding the file caching and write the DVD.

    My PC config is as follows

    AMD Athlon 64 3200+(939 socket)
    Asrock combo-z motherboard
    win XP SP2
    512 MB DDR(333 Mhz) TwinMos
    LG DVD Writer
    160Gb hdd(SATA)
    DMA enabled for the Device

    Thanks
    Guhan

    Every time, all the files are being cached bfore writing ( be it a CD or DVD ).

    Caching takes time when there are lots of files .

    Try to write the same data with same writer on other computer.

    You cant disable caching completely. Actually it will ensure that your burning process will not fail halfway through. Exactly how much time does it take for you??? Please specify

    hmmm......strange...my case is almost opposite...

    i was amazed when i wrote 4.15Gb worth of movie files ( Lost Series ..first 12 episodes) on DVD with 6.0X writing speed using Roxio S/W and it burned the whole DVD in 10/12 mins!!!!

    what amazed me was that a normal CD when burned at 32X ( 700 MB ) takes atleast 5-7 mins...then how come 4.15 GB in 10 mins!!

    and yes i have checke the DVD on DVD player,its working fine !

    try burning the disc again ...but before that do a disc defragmentation..it might help. Also which media brand are you using???

    @grinning devil:In CD's, 1X is equal to 150 KBps; with DVD, 1X is equal to 1.38 MBps.That's why.

    Even the media brand will affect speeds. I hav noticed that while writing into cheaper cds, even though nero reports that it is writing at 40x or something it is actually writing much slower. (Writing at 40x takes same time as 24x.)
    Maybe trouble maybe ur media or maybe some firewall running in the background that may slow down the caching process.

    Exactly how long is it taking ???? the buffering time mainly depends on the total no. of file ....
