burning a DVD iso

So yesterday I started burning a DVD .iso file onto a blank DVD-R on x16 speed using the program CD Burner XP Pro. According to the progress bar its been about 12 hours since it started and its has been stuck at 33% for most of that time. Could the program be frozen or does it normally take this long to burn a large .iso file (about 4GB) onto a blank DVD

At 16x it should take something like 10 mins.

Does the type of blank DVD vs the kind of DVD burner I have installed matter? Because my DVD burner is a dual layer RW while the blank DVD was an DVD-R

No, but the dye does play a role. Do you get an error message?

Dye is the layer which the data is burned. Each DVD disc manufacture has a specific code. What happens is that the code will be recognise by the dvd burner, via firmware data, and a specific writing strategy will be applied to write the data on the disc. If the firmware is older, it might not recognise the info and apply a standard writing strategy, which can result into problems.
Alternatively there could be a problem with the I/O interface, data transfer, powersupply, software conflict or hardware issue.
Try updating the firmware of your drive and use imgburn, if it still doesn't work, try, if not already, to put the source HDD and DVD burner on to separate IDE channels.

Additionally, try burning at a slower speed. Another issue which I have encountered is heavy fragmentation (50 fragments per mb or higher) of the files you are trying to burn will cause that exact problem.
