I had Plextor 12X before now using 32125W my CPU load seems too high (or is it normal?)
For example, if I open any application like Photoshop, Fireworks during burning, the buffer will drop quite soon and everything is opening quite slow.
I checked but there is UDMA not PIA in control panel system preferences.
Is the difference between 12 and 32X so high? How are you burning guys? Leave the computer for that time without touching it?
I have "upgraded" to 48X a little while ago, but the matter is the same or worse. Now before the disk is closed even mouse is frozen for about 30 seconds But the CD was recorded 100% using 40X speed...
Could be the Via 4 in 1 drivers or something else? Or is it normal for such high burning speeds?
