DVD writer writes very slowly

HP Recommended
Pavilion 510-p114
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Purchased this desktop 9 months ago and the DVD writer writes, but MUCH slower than my old HP Pavilion (Vista, about 10 years old).  I was going to retire my older desktop when I purchase the newer one, but the old one writes DVDs 4X faster than the new one.  I'm a video coach for a local football program and have to create 24 DVDs per week for the coaches.  I'm embarrassed to say, I'm using my OLD PC because it takes a fraction of the time.  Tried warranty support (still under its original one year warranty) and they sent me to "Smart Friends" support because my issue is a software problem.  They tell me I must PAY for their support.   Unbelievable!  Does anyone have a suggestion I can try myself?

@RLEEB,

Expected write speed varies depending on  DVD type.  +R media is up to 8X, -R is up to 6X. 

Use this program after you have inserted a blank DVD.  Mode, then discovery.

BTW, what is the rated speed of your DVD material ??

 

Have you ever considered a standalone DVD duplicator ???

With your volume, you need some help.

I appreciate your feedback.  The DVD is rated at the 8X and 6X speeds you referanced.  I was using R+ DVD's, however the drive would take 30-45 minutes to burn a DVD, while my old Vista HP Pavilion would burn 4 in the same time.  HP has directed me to an HP support store near me to have the DVD drive replaced.  I'm hoping that fixes the issue.
