Drive burns at 8x and slower, but not faster

Did you defrag your hard disk and have you disabled any online virus scanner while burning ?

Yes, I defrag frequently and I disable the virus, firewall, etc. software.

One of the guys on the Emachines Upgraders site may have hit upon it - possibly my system just isn’t powerful enough?

I haven’t found a place in Win98 SE to show cpu and memory usage, but sitting at the desk top my system performance in settings shows at about 50% free and when I disable the virus scanner, firewal, digital camera software, etc. it moves up to 65%.

I’m just looking for an excuse to build a new machine anyway . . . :bigsmile:


lol…get a new machine then…a A64 based one…:D:D
