    13. My burns are taking forever to complete suddenly. Why?

    a) Is DMA enabled for your drives in
    i) Windows XP?
    ii) Windows Vista?
    iii) general?

    b) Is the original source disc bad? If so, the reading process will take longer.
    Download Nero cd-dvd speed. It's a free program. Select the tab labeled "scandisc". Select the appropriate drive letter, and click "start". If Nero cd-dvd speed reports read errors, your disc is bad and needs to be exchanged--even if it plays fine (or your optical drive could be slowly dying).

    c) Did you select an appropriate burn speed in Clonedvd? Obviously 4x is going to take longer than 12x.

    d) Try another cable on the back of your burner (try an 80 wire cable if you have an ide burner). Maybe your existing cable has gone bad.

    e) Try defragmenting your hard drive.

    f) Ensure speed control is unchecked in Anydvd (or at least, ensure "Slow and Quiet" is not enabled).
