    I have an external burner hooked into my computer through the USB port on the front of my computer tower. When I go to burn a movie, it will start to read the cd, then all of a sudden freeze. Also, itis telling me 90 minutes just to read the dvd. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    1. Do step 8 from this link: click

    2. i. For XP with ide burners
    Click this

    Do what it says to do if you have XP and an ide burner/optical drive.

    ii. For Vista with ide burners

    Go into device manager, and check to ensure you're using standard Microsoft ide busmaster drivers.

    Right click on your PCI IDE Bus Master controller, and remove it. Ensure that it also removes the driver for your DVD/CD rom. Reboot. Your system should find hardware. After your system is finished installing hardware, reboot again.

    click to get a better idea of what I'm asking for if you're using Vista.

    3. a) Download imgburn. It's a free program:
    (it's also an excellent program imo)

    b) Go to Tools > Filter Driver Load Order. Click "Clipboard". Then paste the information you pasted into your clipboard into your next post (ctrl-v).

    4. Try a different USB port
