Lately my MBP has been taking forever to burn DVD's. It just took me 4+ hours to burn a full lenght .avi movie to DVD. I'm using Toast 8 (OS 10.4).

I've never had a problem before and have been using the same DVD's (Maxell DVD-R) with no problem.

Has anyone come across this? Or you think there is somethin wrong w/ my DVD drive. How do I test it out?

...Also I'm finding that none of the DVD's that I'm burning are working. I've tried using different dvd brands but they will not play on a dvd player (will play on my computer tho)
