I was half way with bruce lee after 2 hours. I am going to get a flat 80 wire ide cable and see if that helps. I have tried everything else that I can think of. The drive is set to master, the ide cable is set directly to the motherboard with no other drives connected to it. Thanks for all your help! If you can think of anything else, please let me know.

[B]I did a search and haven't found the answer to my question and still haven't found the answer. I want to know what the average burn time for a iso (3.8gig) on a dvd-rw using the pioneer 104 [/B]
Now read this word by word and you hopefully get answer to your question. If not, then you're hopeless

1x means 150k/s. thats 150k. your DVD is 3.8 GIg. Thats
1000k X 3500. now use your math knowledge and you'll see that it's nothing wrong with the speed of your burner. People who say otherwise donno what they're talking about!

1000k x 3500 = 3500000k
3500000k / 150K/s = 23333 secounds.
23333s / 3500s = 6 hours!

Its takes 6 hours if you burn a FULL DVD at 1x speed
It takes 3 hours if you burn at 2x.
Now since your xbox games normally don't fill the whole dvd dics it'll take less then 3 hours.

It does not. The dvd standard of burning is not the same as the cd-r standard for speed. 1x DVD burning is at 1.385 MB/s and 2x is double that at 2.770 MB/s. Check out for more info on the dvd recording drives. Includes reviews and pros and cons for each standard and drive.
