Hello I'm using a program called Womble MPEG video wizard to try to make some DVD's of the world cup. All seems fine when I'm making files around the 1.2GB range or under but when I try to make a larger complete DVD like, so anything from 2 to 4GB it is incredibly credibly slow. So slow that I thought it was just frozen until I came back a few hours later and it had moved from 15% to 21%. It was telling me that it had 4 hours left. Thing is it does the smaller files quick as.

Is it just my machine not good enough for the task? I have Athlon64 3200, 1GB Ram.

Any thoughts?

The system and ram should be OK.

Whats the brand/model of the burner? And what speed does it burn DVD's?

It might need a firmware update.

Or try another program, like a Ulead program, or Nerovision. BUT, this needs a serial for a plugin. or cdburnerxp SE. Which is free.

Well thing is I'm not even burning to DVD, simply creating the file and writing it to hard drive to burn later. So should really be a lot quicker.

Perhaps I'll try another program. Shame, I really liked the Womble otherwise.

The hdd might need defragging.
