Have a 600 MHz PIII with 384 MB RAM and W2K Pro SP1. My PowerDVD 4.0 runs great with a constant 40% CPU load. But if I switch to the latest version of Nero Showtime 2 (upgraded version of PowerDVD 4.0), the CPU hits 99 to 100%. The results…stuttering video and sound! The optical drive is an NEC 3500A running in DMA mode 2.
This is silly. Why would Showtime 2 pull so much CPU clock time? There has to be a bug with the program.
