    I have been using Clone DVD and AnyDVD for almost two years burning at least a couple of DVD's a week with no problems. I also update with every email link. The past several burns I have had to abort because it has take over 3 hours (est) to read the data Any Thoughts on what might be going on

    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) 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.

    d) Try defragmenting your hard drive.

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

    f) Click to see what TBPirate did to resolve his problem.
