Hi , lately my system slows to a c-r-a-w-l when burning cd's.
Now i cant even listen to mp3's any more while waitin for a cd to cook.
cant think of anything i've done to cause this prob though.
My system can cope ok : win xp,mitsumi 48x cdrw,athlon 1800,Tried updating cdrw firmware but to no avail...defrag didn't cure either...any ideas ?

most burners work best when all other programs are shut down,a lot depends on the amount of cache being used and how much memory you have.
