How do i tell?
To Storm Jumper:
I checked my DMA, and a few were PIO, so i followed the guides insctructions.
Should transcoding take 3 hours?
i have 512 ram, so i’m guessing that the reason it takes long.[/quote]
My eyes may have over looked it but didn’t see what your operating system is if it is XP 512MB for ram is OK but me I run my XP Pro rig with 1Gig of ram
If it is Vista you should be running no less then 2 Gig of ram
of course also not sure when the last time you have done a system wide maintenance which if it is not done regularly it can slow down your systems performance
