    hi!
    i don't know what happened,
    my dvd burner was ok...
    but now i can't burn even 1 dvd
    it's very verrrrrry slow. more than an hour.
    & it always fail in the data verification.
    i tried nero, roxio... i uninstalled it & reinstalled it.
    but the same problem.
    i tried different media...
    same thing.
    i don't know what happened. maybe i installed something that change
    something in my vista settings?
    i uninstalled my "daemon tools". but the same problem.
    i remember i installed "macdrive" on my vista (a program). but
    uninstalled it weeks ago.
    why it's burning soooo slow? (&why it failes in the dat
    verification)?
    help

    btw i searched the net already & found that DMA issue.
    i went to my device manager & under IDE channel i have dma enabled. s
    this is not the case:

    Hi,

    Try using a lens cleaner disk in the drive. The delay may be due to a dirty
    lens. These disks are commonly available at most outlets that sell writable
    CD/DVD media.
