Newbie question I can’t seem to find an answer too- I have a AMD 2000+ machine I use for day to day tasks that does light DVD burning tasks. The problem is when the machine is burning a disk it is about usless. I assume this is due to heavy IDE channel usage.
What can I do to offload some of the work so the machine is more usefull while burning? Would installing a seperate IDE or SATA card with it’s own burner and storage drive do the trick?
MSI Ultra II-R with KT-333
1 gig of ram
There are two Seagate 160gig in RAID mirroring with a DVD burner on the regular KT-333 IDE channel.
