    Its taking me almost an hour to burn a dvd with nero 7 ultra edition.I recently installed a new samsung dvd writer and installed latest drivers from samsung.com upon installation and it has always taken very long to burn but i didn't really know it wasn't suppose to take so long:cool: ........but anyway i was told to burn a cd and check the buffer level while burning and i was told the level should not go up and down,well mine did,so long story short i uninstalled old nero upgraded to nero 7 ultra and dvd still took about an hour to burn.......any help well appreciated!!!
