Q: Solved: Why did my Dvd Writing speed slow down?

My dvd writing speed used to be faster but now it is like 5x slower then when i bought it which was about 1 and a half year ago. The max it can go is 16x. When i use nero and write files to DVDs it writes slower. Nero still says that it is going 16x max but i can tell that it is Slow.like 8x slower.

Can anyone help me get it to run faster?

I bought a Sony DVD Burner (20X) a few months ago (2-3) and until recently, its been burning dvds at about an average of 12-15x which is fine by me. But as of the last few days it hasn't gotten higher than 2.2-2.4x.

Does anyone know how this might have happened or how to fix it?

Is it something that might even be repairable.

Thanks

Hi guys. I hope you can help on this issue I've been having with my internet connection, I don't know what to do...

I resently formatted my harddrive because my internet all of a sudden started being very slow but after the format it's still the same issue. Now I've tried plugging the connection line into my laptop and there there's no problem.

I am gettin' a slower download than upload...

I have a 10mb download/1 upload speed LAN connection. I ran a speed test on the same connection and on my stationary it shows like 250 kbs download and like 750 kbs upload, while on my laptop it shows like 8 Mbs download and 750 kbs upload... so what's the problem?

So far I've found out that it has nothing to do with the internet connection line or my NIC (I tried a brand new one and it was the same issue), it's not spyware or malware, it's not fragmented and under internet connections it says that I'm connected on a 100 Mb network card and there are no problems with any of the devices?

However I can see that if I open the job list, the download connection is very unstable going from up to 750 kb for a breif moment then falls to a halt at 0 kb... and moreover it says that I'm not using any percent of the network?

I'm on windows 7 and haven't had any problems before this, the rest of the system works just fine, but not the internet. If I try and download something it won't get higher than like 50 kb and then may... Read more

Hi.

I have this very annoying problem and I'm really out of hopes. I don't know what to do anymore. I'll make a summary of the problem and will be as concise as possible

So I have this Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop with a broadband connection (direct cable, no router) and 3 weeks ago I reinstalled my Windows. Everything went well until 2 weeks ago when the internet speed went down, dial-up like. Pages won't load, and if they do they load just partially. I called my ISP and they said they had no problem. I couldn't find any solution so I thought maybe, some sort of virus or spyware is doing this so I formated the whole hard-disk and did a clean install of Windows.

Unfortunatelly nothing changed, the download speed is the same. Here is a speedtest.net evaluation:

http://www.speedtest.net/result/2276053238.png

Drivers are up to date, no windows firewall, no antivirus and no windows update. The ISP support guy told me to deactivate IPv4 and IPv6 from Local Area Connection, but nothing changed. I did a TCP/IP reset which raised my down speed to almost 1 Mb, but after a few minutes it went back to "dial-up". With the down speed being the same, Speedtest sometimes shows me upload speed in between 50-70 Mb which is unbelievable (I will make a ss next time I see this).

And the very weird thing is that I have another netbook (pretty weak config, Intel Atom CPU, 2 GB RAM) and with the same cable it has normal speed (the kind of speed I had on this Dell too). An... Read more

I have a 24x max writer on my notebook, and up until the last package of discs I bought, it would write at 24x (so it said). I bought some Memorex cd-rs rated at 52x. When one of these discs is in, The software (Easy CD Creator 5) refuses to write any faster than 10x. If I take that disc out and put in one from a different package that i have (rated at 24) it writes it at 24 just fine.

Does this sound like a software issue, hardware issue, or media defection?

Not that 10x is too slow for me, but it makes me wonder....

Hi,
Im using windows 7 Enterprise and Im testing the array of an array of 8 WD Red 4TB NAS Hard Disk Drive. Each disk individually writes at a speed of 160MB/s I believe.
The problem Im having is that the writing speed is not steady. For some unknown reason (to me at least) writing speeds start at around 600MB/s but then it slows to 150MB/s and then back again and down again. The changes are sudden and the perodicity is not
steady, although is probably around 15 to 30 minutes.
Does anyone have any clue if windows 7 Enterprise can be messing with the writing speed of the RAID? Same configuration in windows 10 pro seems to work just fine.

I just got a new Dell PC with XP Pro. I have DSL with an advertised download speed up to 728 Kbits/sec. My internet speed seemed sluggish so I tested it over the last 5 days, several times a day at different times. The download speed varied between 54-171.
I tried disabling the firewall & anti-virus software (scary) but neither made a difference.

Could this be a problem with my ISP or could it be my PC? Is there such a thing as configuring a PC to be optimised for DSL rather than dial-up?

I wasn't sure exactly WHERE to post this... so, I'm gonna start here...

I have a very small desktop computer. It has an AMD Athlon Processor (2850e) 1.8 Ghz, and 2GB RAM. (64 bit OS). it is made by EMACHINES model #EL1331G. I use FIREFOX browser & windows 7 os.

This computer has always been fine for just me. But now my husband has found FACEBOOK GAMES, and it takes FOREVER to load anything! The USER PROFILES option NEVER WORKED ON THIS COMPUTER ~ I have tried to make different profiles, but it never worked. So, it's not only the two of us on it, but now my son wants to use it also. I know this is taking up huge amounts of space & memory. I've tuned it up, taken off unused programs, cleaned it out, and it still doesn't run very well. Pages load eventually, and they can IM pretty quickly.

My question is... can I buy more memory for this computer and make it faster? or should we just buy another tower?? I thought that you could open it up & add another memory board to it?

My next step is to take all my photos & music & put it on my external hard drive, then remove them all from this computer. I just bought myself a laptop, but haven't "broken it in" yet. And, there's a lot of information on this desktop that is still being used by me.

Also, please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.


On any problem computer, I'd also like to see this:

Type the following command:

Hi,

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit installed for probably a year. For the past few months, the computer's been running pretty slow. The OS takes long to completely boot, and by 'completely boot' I mean the time when you can launch programs. That is, after the OS has fully loaded all of its processes.

Symptoms of slow speed:

Launching a certain 1GB installation (.exe) file causes Windows Explorer to freeze, which requires manually terminating its process and then restarting it.
Start Menu search takes relatively long to show results.
Desktop icons automatically refresh when closing some Windows Explorer windows.
Windows Explorer permanently/temporarily freezes when using it. It also takes very long to scan drives (that is: partitions, DVD drives, etc...).
How do I go about finding the root of this evil?

Update: Looks like all of the problems were solved merely by moving the 1GB .exe file from D drive to C drive. Now everything is as speedy as it should be.

Edit: So relieved now, solved the problem.
I don't know what the problem is and its starting to get on my nerve.

Just a couple of weeks ago my internet was running at its normal speed, but then just recently its running a lot slower. The normal download speed for my Qwest DSL was about 1000 kbps but now its around 300 kbps and my normal upload speed was about 1500 kbps and now its around 400 kbps.

I did a full system virus/spyware scan and found some stuff and deleted them but I'm still having the same problem. I heard from somewhere else that the Internet Security Suite could be slowing down the internet, but I ruled that out becuase I had Zonealarm Internet Security Suite for a long time and it has never slow down my internet.

Well I think I provided everything I know so far. Any help would be nice and if you need more info, I'll try to provide as much as I can.

I've looked at all the solutions here and elsewhere for a solution to my problem, I've tried everything, disabled addons, deleted browsers and reinstalled, no proxy, starting in safe mode etc. My most recent speed is fast, 32.4 down, latency 20ms, but ALL my browsers take forever to load pages.Some take 10 seconds or more. Status bar says "waiting for..." or "transferring from..." I'm using wireless.

If I stop and reload, the pages will load quickly. I have used other WIFI besides mine and the problem is the same, so it's not a router issue. I also used an external usb wifi adapter and that didn't make a difference. Right now I'm at a friend's place and it's the same issue and I'm sitting about 5 feet away from the router.

Toshiba laptop: 1.7 MHZ, 4 GB RAM, WIndows 8/64bit.

It's driving me nuts.

Any ideas?

I got spoiled having a cable modem for the last year. Now I'm in a situation where I can't use it and have to rely on a dial up 56k connection to access the internet.

I have a fast enough pc, running an Insignia Pentium 4 at 2.8 ghz using windows XP. The modem is the one that came with it...a Creative Blaster PCI Value DI5652-1. I have checked with the provider a couple of times, and can't seem to get past a 26.4 connect on this 56K modem. Are there any particular initilization strings that can get this modem working faster?

Hello all, I am new to these forums and like what I see so far!! So, to my problemo!

I was given my friends laptop to attempt to fix. It's about a year old, and for approximately 3 or 4 months it has apparently been running very "slow". I did the usual virus/spyware checks but to no avail. So I moved on to hardware checks. It also seemed that anything I did took AGES to finish... For example, I did a simple chkdsk from command prompt in windows. This took about 1 hour to complete, stating "there are erros on the disk". I then ran the full chkdsk after reboot, which also took a very long time, and eventually began streaming errors very fast saying "The disk does not have enough space to replace bad clusters detected in file 1 of name." and this kept going counting up and up and up. I left it overnite counting upwards of 40'000, to find it in the morning, rebooted into windows.

I then moved onto downloading the HDD Diagnostic tool provided by the manufacturer. The HDD is a Fujitsu (MHV2080AT) 80Gb, IDE. There are 2 tests available in this program. The "Short" and the "Extended". The approximate times given for the tests were 2 minutes and 70 minutes respectively. However, the short test took an hour or so and passed and the extended was going for about 2 hours before I went to bed, it being at 25%. And once again, passing once I came back to it in the morning.

I got my hands on Freshdiagnose next and I finally see... Read more

Hello!

Have spent (wasted?) better part of the last 5 days (not counting days previous to this current round of troubleshooting) trying to save my PC and sanity. Have limited funds; need free fix.

Running XP, 64-bit. Deleted unused, unwanted folders/files, uninstalled bad programs, cleaned system w/CCleaner, have MalwareBytes Pro & MSSE for protection. Believe have pared down startup programs to minimum so don't have to mess with starting programs like iTunes (as far as I can tell, am only running 5 programs at startup). Added external hard drive last summer. At first it did the trick; now, worse than ever (I installed & used it w/o knowing enough about it). Sometimes PC runs like bunny & I get so hopeful! Then, it runs like molasses, and "tech rage" soars again. Though am largely self-taught, I suspect that something is running in background that doesn't need to be. I can't find it, though. Have checked Task Manager, but am not knowledgeable as to what all those things are unless has name of program. In addition, when updating/downloading/uninstalling/deleting program, I discover that some app or program like MalwareBytes, MSSE, Games (i.e., solitaire, freecell that comes already installed w/PC), will drop off desktop at unpredictable times. Doesn't happen every time.

So, I study the forums faithfully, and am hoping I have understood directions for submitting Hijack This info. I need this PC for my job. And, after coming so far ... Read more

Hi, I have the sierra aircard 875u, ATT 3g, Ijust bought the MBR 1000 router to network. THe speed on the host is actually faster than using the att communication manager. However, on the other computer itis really slow. Previously I had a linksys N router and managed to get internet sharing up and there was no speed issue. THe speed noted on the client is 54mbs, signal strength "very good" However this is extremely slow, slower than a dial up connection.
Is this typical, is there a way to speed it up? Could the problem be a slow network card?
Thanks

My Sony Vaio laptop is experiencing slow internet speed even though the signal level shows as excellent. This is only when using it upstairs, where it is normally used. In the same room as the router it is fine. This has only just starting happening and it was OK anywhere in the house until a couple of days ago. To make it even more confusing my wife's notebook and my iphone work fine on the network in the bedroom. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello Everyone,
I need help please. I have 4 computers (iMac, 2 laptops and 1 PC desktop) on a wireless network in different rooms of my house. All but one have 20+ mbps speed. The problem desktop computer is new but has 2.4 mbps speed. I have cable modem with a fast bandwidth and a Cisco N600 router.

I changed the network card (ASUS PCE-N53 Wireless -N Adapter) in the problem computer which didn't improve anything. As I write this, I am using a laptop on the desk with the problem computer and just did a speedtest which came in at 20.13 mbps. If I hard wire the problem computer it runs at 30+ mbps.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I have the Belkin F5D8236-4 router found here http://www.engadget.com/products/belkin/f5d8236-4/.

Is this slowdown of speed due to my router/interference or what?

Hello all,

Have been searching for days trying to figure my problem but can't find the solution.

ISP provides us with 20 mb/s download speed. Both [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]Toshiba [COLOR=blue !important]laptops[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] used to be able to attain this but after reinstalling windows xp on this laptop, it can only achieve 8mb/s. The other laptop will get 20 mb/s whether connected wired or wireless. For the life of me cannot figure what has changed. I have installed all windows updates including SP3 and updated all drivers via Toshiba and Intel websites. It uses the Intel 3945b/g network card and the router is a motorola sbg 6580.

Here is what I have done so far:
Connecting wired will achieve 20mb/s so it has something to do with the wireless setup.
Have tried connecting to router with WPA, WPA2, and no encryption but makes no difference.
Testing right beside the router or 30ft away makes no difference.
Have uninstalled/reinstalled network card but made no difference

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you
