Burn Time?

  ened 06:23 05 Jul 2004

Hi there.
I have an LG 4082b DVD burner.
DVD-R Data discs take about 20 minutes to burn a full disc (4.5gig).
Yesterday I burnt an hour long film in high quality to a DVDRAM.
The file size on the comp. is 700meg and used up 2,5 gig on the disc.
The burn took over three hours.
Is this normal?

700 MEG to 2.5GB.

I bet there is encoding going on, are you using nero or what burning software are you using?

I am using the software which came with the unit:PowerProducer2 Gold.
I assumed the increase in size was because I was asking for 'High Quality' repro.
The original came from a VCR so I could have forgone that because you will only get as good as you start with.
But on this practice it would take nearly six hours to burn a full DVDRAM.
That doesn't sound right does it?
BTW It was supposedly recording @ 3X.

Using the same model burner I have just created an high quality slide show using high res. images. File size 900Mbs. Rendering time took 45 minutes, actual burn time using 2x disk 6.5 minutes.

What software were you using?

I normally use Roxios CD & DVD creator v6, but for creating & burning slideshows I use ProShow Gold
