DVD Writer is so slow in burning discs

Postby Dalamar on Wed Jun 24, 2009 6:32 am

I have an LG Internal Super Multi DVD Rewriter. It says on the box that it has 22x DVD Write Speed. But as you can see from the included screenshot, it's less than 1x speed. Also, notice that the progress bar does not seem to function. It took me around 15 mins to burn around 3GB of data. I used Brasero.

I used this drive when I was using Kubuntu 9.04 to burn Linux Mint 7 ISO but did not encounter the same problem.

What can I do to speed up the burning process? Thanks!

Brasero seems to have problems making data discs.

K3b is a much better application. It's in the repos.

I tried k3b but it hangs. Incidentally, Emerald manager also hangs.

Other apps to try (all in the repos) are gnomebaker, nautilus-cd-burner, and xfburn.

The Emerald problem may be related, maybe not. It might be a good idea to start a thread about that and mention the DVD problem.

Hi - I am having the same problem with a slow DVD drive while using Brasero. My DVD drive is 4x write speed but when I try to write a data DVD, it shows the speed as 0.1x (the display sometimes shows the speed as 0x as well) and it does take a very long time to write data. The settings is set to write at MAX speed. I tried changing it to 4x (the only other option available) and nothing changed. I never had this problem in LM6. I am wondering whether it is an issue with LM7 or with Brasero. Appreciate any suggestions on how to resolve this issue. Thx.

I looked at your screenshot, why is it showing as 0% done ?, when do you determine the speed of writing for the device

Ok, so have you tried a reinstall of brasero, if the progress bar doesn't work, something is incorrect with the application or its install..
--synaptic mint menu>System>Package Manager, is the easiest way to do that..

Which version of Brasero
    apt show brasero
    State: installed
    Automatically installed: no
    Version: 2.26.1-0ubuntu1
--This is the version that Linux mint 7 -gloria uses..

You can always try something like xfburn (liburnia), it uses a different underlying library than either k3b or Brasero (Wodim)

hwinfo is a package available in repository..
