I have been burning DVDs on my PC for a little while now, and it always takes forever to do. My average DVD burn takes about one and a half to about three hours. Is this normal or is there something wrong with my pc? The computer just reached one year of age and is still fairly new. Is it that my computer does not have enough power to do quick DVD burns or is this normal? Also, if I try to burn a DVD and do something else on the PC at the same time, it shuts off and restarts itself, which means that I have to start this long process all over again, which is very fustrating. Should I think about getting a more powerful PC or should I just be more patient when doing DVD burns? Someone please help me!

You need to go into device manager and set all your drives to DMA, not PIO........ Also do a defrag.
