    Hello FKrs...

    So i'm waiting for a DVD to burn and it's taking an age...

    It says it's verifying disc and it's taking as long as it took to burn it, can I stop it safely?

    Don't, it'll finish. It usually takes me about 25 minutes to burn / verify a DVD at 4x. Be thankful you're not doing Lightscribe. Now that takes forever.

    I don't understand why it needs to verify when the writing is complete?

    If it finds it's ****ed... it's still gonna be ****ed whether it checked or not?

    I say go ahead with verification... stopping it may end up in it not noticing that the session had not been closed properly. Nero and Alcohol 120% can go back and close properly if need be.

    And yes... I hate it too. Immensely.

    I know that Nero has a checkbox that allows you to disable disc verification. I think you have to hit the "advanced" button to see that option.

    I only do it to ensure that the data is written properly since I only really use it for archiving.

    Just try burning to a DVD yourself with a small laser and a magnify glass, see how long that takes.
