    I got a new DVD Burner....HP 300i and I am using the program that came with it to create my own DVD's....

    I have a movie that is 1.5 gigs and it's an MPEG format.....

    I went to use the software that came with my burner ArcSoft ShowBizDVD creator....I added the MPEG to the project and I put some wallpapers for the dvd's menu screen....

    NOW THE PROBLEM:

    When I went to create the DVD...the Transcoding took about 6 hours...the multiplexing and spliting and authoring took about 15min and the burn took about 20-25min which I'm ok with....But the main Transcoding of the MPEG took over 6 hours....

    Is this normal?

    And if it is...what can I do to reduce the Transcoding wait time? Can you suggest some software I could use or look for please?

    Thanx for listening.... :bigthumb:

    I use the same DVD-burner and proggy, and have the same problem. Don't know how to fix it.
    Have you tried to burn any Divx movies? Are they upside down for you, too?

    Get a new DVD authoring software. I use Ulead DVD Workshop and there's a box you can check and it WILL NOT try to transcode compliant MPEG files. I usually burn home movies in the 4 gig range and with menu/music, it usually takes 20 minutes before the 15 minute burn.
