I've been having problems with burning movies stored on my external hd. I used to be able to do anything while burning a movie from it. Now if I try to check email or anything while burning the computer completely freezes up and the disc is ruined. I can burn off my internal hd without any problems. The external hd is hooked up via firewire through a pc card. It freezes up even when hooked up via usb 2.0
Dvds rip to it perfectly with no snags no matter what Im doing.
I use dvd decryptor to burn. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it and even running the program off the external hd but still no success.
My computer is a Toshiba S206 2.8 GHZ Win Xp SP2 (all current updates) with 896 mb Ram and a Nec6500A burner using stock firmware. The external harddrive is connected via firewire through a Zonenet PC Card to a Western Digital 320GB 7200 Rpm Hd with 8 Mb Cache. I use dvd decrypter to burn. Thank You for your help!!!!!
