Either or both could be the cause. If it's a USB 2.0 connection then the files will take a long time to go from the external, to the computer, to the DVD burner, and finally to the DVD.
Explorer might use the 1x speed. It is usually recommended to use the lowest speed option to avoid making a stack of shiny coasters instead if DVDs.
