Default DVD burning

I just wanted to know a couple of things about burning a film to DVD. i have films on the hard drive but they take about four hours to burn to DVD at 8x. Any suggestions of why this may be?

I don't belive 8x is very fast these days, but I could be wrong. Try updating your drivers, getting a better burning software, or upgrading the drive all together. Keep in mind, that burning a DVD is going to take a long time no matter what.

I am currently having a problem where it just freezes in the middle of burning.

I don't think .avi works with it. Atleast not with mine.

Find out the smallest sized format of video that is compatable I suppose.

well if your dvd drive supports it use 16x disks then it'll go twice as fast , also make sure that when your burning it its set to go at the maximum speed what program are u using to burn? if your not using it already nero would be good

It depends what format your player will play...you want to make sure you use the format that it will play so you can watch you dvd on it. Most newer dvd players will play all formats, but DVD+R may be your best bet for use on older players......
