I have two main questions:
- Does burning slow down a computer considerably or can it be software or just specific components of a computer system/?
I have an AMD 64 with Socket 939 X2 4200+ CPU with 2 Gigs of DDR RAM. But, whenever I burn (usually using Nero), my computer slows down considerably and is barely usable. Can I upgrade anything or is this computer just maximized in its resources use?
I was considering buying an Intel P965 or P35 machine with E6750 cpu to do this work and leave my current computer to be my HTPC machine. Would that help?
- What do you prefer for A) converting avi to dvd and B) for general all-purpose DVD burning? I am currently using NERO but it is TERRIBLY slow. I don’t know if that’s just the burning process, my computer or partly due to Nero. I also would like to know how to burn a DVD to my hard drive using Nero or if someone thinks there is better software out there, I would like to learn what alternatives are good. Nero is still useful but I need to learn how to optimize it and use it better. I find it somewhat tricky to go through the menu for what I want to do.
Thanks in advance for any assistance/replies.
