I have used CloneDVD and AnyDVD very easily for couple years on a desktop.. older model.. Pentium 4.. 1 GB Ram... burn time TO puter was 17-20 min... about the same to burn TO a blank... XP Pro OS
However... just got a new Dell laptop... Duo Core 2 - 4 GB of Ram...Vista Home Prem OS... and NOW my burn time TO puter is about an HOUR.. but burn time TO blank is about 15-20 min...
I read the thread about checking to see if DMA was enabled on channels.. BUT this puter does NOT have those options in the areas described and displayed with screenshots.. SOOOO I am lost as to what to try next...

The drive used for reading might be riplocked, in which case, you're out of luck unless some workaround is available (such as,modifying firmware which generally voids warranties). There may be other factors involved as well.
a) Ensure Anydvd is running.
b) Put an original movie dvd in your burner. Wait for Anydvd to scan the disc.
c) Right click the red fox icon on your toolbar.
d) Select "Create Logfile"
e) Wait for Anydvd to create a log file.
f) A pop-up screen will appear. Take note of the location where Anydvd created the logfile and the logfile's name. Click "ok".
g) Go to your My Documents folder
h) You will see a zip file called "Anydvd_Info_titleofmydisc.zip" (or something similar; see step f)
i) When replying or posting in the Slysoft forums, look for the icon that looks like http://forum.slysoft.com/images.slysoft/editor/attach.gif (in other words, look for the paperclip after clicking "quote" or when creating a new thread)
j) If you don't see that paperclip icon, click the "go advanced" button. You should see that icon now. Click the paperclip.
k) A small pop-up screen should appear (if it doesn't please ensure your browser is enabled to allow pop-ups from the Slysoft forums)
l) Click the "Browse" button, and locate and select the .zip file you created.
m) click "upload"
n) Close the window. When you submit reply, or submit a new thread, the .zip file will be attached automatically for us to take a look at
2) Try defragmenting your hard drive.
3) Ensure speed control is unchecked in Anydvd (or at least, ensure "Slow and Quiet" is not enabled).
