    I put in a blank disc and choose to burn it with windows and it take hours just to move a few megs to a DVD?

    I have an HP system vista premium and it has Roxio 9 basic and roxio burns real fast but I hate roxio and was going to uninstall it.

    Anyway to get the Windows burner to work right?

    What is a good lightweight DVD/CD burner software program for vista?

    You know i experince the same thing. Vista DVD burning is unbelievably slow. It seems to pick any speed regardless of anything. You can take an hour buring 100mb's onto a DVD, one time, 30 mins buring 200mb and maybe 2hrs buring 700mb.

    I use nero 7 which is great and burns DVD's at the max speed the disk/burner allows. Try obtaining nero 7 ultra edition in shops or other sources *hint* ;)

    I second the comments on Nero 7. I'm using it on Vista 32-bit Ultimate and can burn a DVD in only a few minutes at 16x.
