While we can use the fastest drive and media we can find, some tasks take hours as the video is made into a DVD video and then put to the media.

whether its mp3's or movies in any format, it takes the same time.

i don't convert them..
'copying them' in the same format they are.

(basically its getting all the stuff i need for future use from the computer to a dvd, without changing their format)

After re-installing the O.S two weeks ago,, things worked out fine!! 6mins is the longest it has taken so far. So anybody with the same problem, try out re-installing your os.
