Configuring Windows for Direct-to-DVD Recording

Unlike the recording from files that I covered in the last chapter, direct-to-DVD recording is much more demanding on your entire system—therefore, it's important to make sure that your computer and its operating system have been correctly optimized for best performance. In this section, I'll discuss the three important steps you should take before attempting a direct-to-DVD session.

Using DMA Mode

DMA stands for Direct Memory Access, and it's the fastest method of transferring data directly from your computer's memory to your recorder (without processing it or routing it through the CPU beforehand). To record directly from a video source to your recorder successfully, you should enable DMA on your primary hard drive.
