    Nothing is wrong it your comp, burning takes a significant amount of system resources. Plus your system is a little dated as well. When I had an XP it did the same thing until it was finished.

    Thinking about it though, my first CD-Writer was on an old 166+ (Cyrix or something, can't remember) with 32MB RAM - and that worked fine.

    Although it was Win98 and Easy CD Creator.

    :thumb: Your CPU usage shouldn't be anywhere near 100%, even with a slow Duron. Usually this type of problem is solved by updating your drive's firmware but it can also commonly be an issue with the IDE drivers or settings. Redownload the latest mobo drivers, install them and then check that DMA/UDMA is enabled in Device Manager.

    Check your running DMA mode, not PIO. Check under device manager in windows.

    It was PIO then i enable DMA. Shut down the pc....but the problem is still there. I'll try the original drivers that came with the mobo... :wallbash:

    its not out dated.... :eyebrow: :grr: :eyebrow:



    found out it was the crappy McAfee 2005 that caused this..when its disabled....all work fine.....

    NO 100% CPU usage.....average 20-25% for wma to cd audio
    and 03-8% for mp3 to cd audio

    You haven't got anything dumb enabled like auto protection have you? It might have been scanning the files as Nero loaded them into memory to burn them, but that is a just a guess ;)

    :thumb: Norton and McAfee are both over-rated bloatware and I wouldn't recommend them even if they were free. The latest version of AVG is an excellent and FREE antivirus program although there are others too.

    sorry for the late reply :rock:

    @ConKbot of Doom
    means the TDK is good?
    yup McAfee.


    @JADS
    Norton has more functions like you can select some folder not to be auto-scaned, like for bt d/l folder

    @Austin
    Yeah norton alwiz cause problem, same goes to McAfee which doesnt detect virus unless u do teh manual scan

    AVG used it last time...will give it a try again...bye bye McAfee
