can anyone tell me why my dvd r/w burner has slowed down.
It takes about 1 hour to burn cd roms as well.

It could well be on its way out. How old is it?

Have you changed DVD discs or CD Roms? As the speed on the disc can be affected.

dvd's are what i have always used it was fine no very very slow

Have you accidentally reduced the burn speed?

What program do you use to burn?

You will probably see something like 'write speed' (that's what's in Nero anyway).

Hi if your speed was already on x14,then there must be another reason for the slow burning speed.Try giving the pc a clean up using ccleaner and see if it improves.Also running other programmes while your burning will slow the process down.
