Default how long does it take to burn DVD?

Hi everyone,
I am using NERO Ultra Version 6. With a Sony DVD burner 12x rite now?
My normal time to burn DVD-9 to DVD+R is about 1 hour to 1h30 ( ofcouse i use DVD-shrink for this ). I dont complain anything about that. However, whenever i burn movies files that i downloaded from P2P, then make a DVD with those file, usually, NERO take about 4 hours for a 2-hour-show-time DVD, and 8 hours for a 4-hour-show-time DVD. I want to ask if that is the normal speed you guys have when you burn your DVD? Or my DVD burner sucks?
I have a P4 3.0 Ghz LGA 775, 512MB DDR2, UATA 160GB .

"Good golly miss molly" ....hours ?????

it should only take no more than 20 minutes, depending on what your burning.

i can burn an mps cd w/160 songs in 12 minutes. a DVD movie in 15 minutes.

So my guess is your write speed is way too slow, your NERO prog. should be up to date too.

Did you do a write test w/NERO to determine you read/write speeds? i would try it out with a different burn prog....or try the drive on a different
comp. to see if it's the burner at fault.
