    I have a LG GSA4163B burner that has been running extremely slow...
    when I first got it 2 months ago, it would read a dvd movie within 20
    minutes, and burn a backup within 10 minutes....now, it takes at least an
    hour to read, and almost an hour to backup. I use DVD Xcopy
    for software. I have cleaned up my hard drive with AdAware, and have
    defragmented, but still no improvement. I haven't added any other hardware
    or software to my system since having the LG burner installed.
    This is my first dvd burner, so I guess I'm a newbie.
    What gives? Why the slowdown? Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Are you sure you aren't re-encoding the movie into some other format?
    I takes a lot longer if you aren't doing a mpeg2 backup.
