    How fast is your burner? At what speed are you burning in the settings?

    Check for PIO Mode:
    Go to
    1. My Computer
    2. Control Panel
    3. System
    4. Hardware
    5. Device Manager
    6. IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers
    7. Open the installed IDE channels (Primary and Secondary)
    8. Click on Advanced settings
    9. You will see the transfer mode. If any are PIO you need to un-install the channel (right click and choose uninstall) and re-boot. Windows will reinstall the device and return it to DMA mode.
    Here is another link that has more detail and pics. DMA

    What are your pc specs? Just the processor and ram will help.
    Right click on 'my computer'. Click on properties and general tab.
    Your pc info - ram and processor will be listed at the bottom.

    Depending on the specs of your pc - if you're multitasking while burning can slow things down too.

    Have you done a disc defrag & defrag recently?

    kelzmumkittywiskers,
    On the last page of CloneDVD ... the final page before you "go to burn" set the burn-speed of your 16x rated blanks to 12x as long as you are using quality media like Taiyo Yuden or Verbatim. Set it to 8x if you are using other (lower quality) brands of media.

    Best regards,
    Whisperer

    PS: afterthought ... your burner drive is also rated at a 16x speed right? Check the specs of your burner model in the documentation that came with it or the manufacturer's website.

    also shut down any other programs that are running in the backround this will also help

    Also, when you say:
    Did you really mean to communicate, instead, "the whole backup process" of both ripping the files off the original and then burning those files onto the blank media or do you truly mean, as you stated,"burning" only?

    If it is ripping and burning, are you using two DVD drives(?): one (a DVD-ROM drive) for the rip and one (a DVD-RW drive) for the burn? If you are ripping with a DVD-RW burner, be aware that they are generally optimized for burning efficiency and not ripping speed. If this is indeed what you are doing, consider getting a nice cheap little 16x DVD-ROM drive to do your ripping. I like the $20 Lite-On drive that seems to be in every retail store in the US.
