Windows 7 Live File System Burning Problem - Solved

I had a problem with Windows 7 Home Premium & Live File System burning. Slow burning and reduced DVD disc capacity - see orig post below.

This is not an uncommon problem and is Windows 7 related - it is a Universal Disk Format File System Driver issue. There is a hotfix available -  See issue 3. It worked...

"I burn slowly at 500k and approx. 1gb will "fill" a 4.7GB DVD.  I've updated drivers, BIOS, Motherboard chipset drivers, burner firmware and installed a new burner.  Nero burns fine as does a Mastering burn.  DVD+R & DVD-R discs are affected. DVD-RW burn fast and with no problems.  I have done a clean install of Windows 7 and applied updates, yet I have the same problem. There is no AV or other software running - just Windows 7. All drivers are Windows certified AFAIK. No USB devices either.

If I do a clean install of Vista SP2 Business on the same machine, there is no problem and I can burn Live File System DVD discs on any media at >3mb/sec and get full disc capacity. So it's definitely Windows 7 related."

Hope this fixes some people's problems.

Hi Gokul & thanks

Yes, followed the approaches above - Drag and Drop. I receive no error message at all - just slow burning which uses up a lot of disc place. Mastered burning is OK.

I have tried in Safe Mode and with the "disable driver signature enforcement". I have also done a Clean boot and a clean install & have the  same issue. What's weird is
that Vista is perfect on the same machine. I can only guess that there has been some changes in W7 packet-writing which impacts my config.

Also, smaller files seem OK (<90Mb). Larger ones start off burning well and then slow down and start eating up the disc space

Any thoughts welcomed.
