I am considering the purchase of a DVD writer. At first I was put off by the system requirements quoted by the various manufacturers, thinking that they ruled out any chance of the drive operating successfully with my PC. Browsing through this forum, though, I’ve come to realise that some of these requirements may be somewhat exaggerated.
My system specs are:
- AMD Duron, 950Mhz
- 120MB RAM (128MB total - 8MB shared memory)
- Windows XP
- and more than enough free hard drive space
From what I gather, the sticking point would likely be the fact that I effectively have only 120MB of RAM. Could I buy a DVD writer with confidence that my PC is up to the task? It doesn’t necessarily have to be able to operate at full speed - I don’t mind waiting, provided it produces reliable recordings.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
