Just bought my first DVD burner (Pioneer DVR-108) and noticed that when I burnt my first DVD the HDD was constantly thrashing and the PC was basically unuseable (well, useable but very slow).
The Pio (Slave, UDMA4) shares the Secondary IDE channel with a Lite-On 166s (Master, UDMA2).
Is the constant HDD thrashing normal? Media was a DVD+R 4x.
My setup :
Celery 1A @ 1.35GHz
Asus TUSL2C mobo w/Intel 815P chipset
