[access-uk] Re: Windows 7 and DVD RW

George,

Yes, both drives are in the same machine.

I shall check out Event Viewer and see what it says.

yes, I have all updates applied. It is a bit of a pain if wanting to extract 
something off a disk, which takes a brief moment to complete, but with this 
lag, I think my 386 33Mhz I had years ago running Win 3.11 would be quicker!! 
lol!

Thanks, and I'll get back with more when I find out,

Mike

  Mike,

   

  Are the two drives in the same machine?

   

  I presume you have you applied all the latest Windows 7 updates?

   

  I somehow doubt it's BIOS, but I've been wrong many times, so perhaps worth 
checking if yours is up to date.

   

  It might however be worth trying to access Event Viewer and see what errors, 
if any, are appearing there.

   

  George.

  George,

   

  Yes, I have two drives the same, both Sony DVD rw's. Any DVD, or other disk, 
whether a data disk or music/video spins up quickly, but takes up to 5 minutes 
before the Autoplay screen appears. I tried Googling it, but seen that some 
other people had similar problems, but it was an error within Win 7, but as 
mine came pre installed, I don't know if a re-install of Win 7 (full version) 
would work.

   

  Could it be a bios problem?

   

  Regards,

   

  Mike

    Mike,

     

    I'm trying to get a handle on when and when things are being delayed.

     

    Approximately how long does it take before you hear the DVD spinning?  If 
you don't hear it in say 15 - 20 seconds, I'd suspect the DVD drive or the 
media.

     

    Do I take it it's the same for all DVDs?  If you've tried 5 or 6 then it's 
unlikely to be media.  And I presume it's a fairly new drive?

     

    George.

    George,

     

    Thanks, I don't understand it, I have a 3.4Ghz Quad running Windows 7 home 
with 4 Gb of ram and it is a Sony DVD rw, yet it is so slow.

     

    Any suggestions?

     

    Regards,

     

    Mike

      Hi Mike,

       

      From closing the DVD drawer to seeing the initial screen from the DVD 
itself took 30 seconds exactly.  And I was running Outlook 2003 and Solitaire 
at the same time.  FWIW, my 64 bit Windows 7 Professional system has 3GB RAM, 
and a 2.4 Ghz Intel Quad Processor.  It's Windows Experience Index rating is 
5.8.

       

      George.

      Hello,

       

      If someone has Windows 7 64bit, can they please try inserting a DVD movie 
and let me know what the seek time is before autoplay comes on.

       

      Mine is running about 5 minutes or so before Autoplay appears.

       

      Many thanks,

       

      Mike
