Most of the DVD writers I’ve considered buying list a 600MHz system as a (minimum?) requirement. Is this related to the software or the hardware? How firm is this requirement? My two systems are 450MHz PIII and 500MHz PIII ASUS P3B-F’s with 256MB and 512MB of RAM, respectively.
I’m thinking of buying a relatively inexpensive NEC ND-1100a, just to play around with until the DVD burner hardware scene settles down a bit, but will it work at all on either of my systems, considering the stated 600MHz requirement?
I realize I’m due for a hardware upgrade very soon, but these two ASUS motherboards have been rock-solid and reliable as a stone axe and not being a gamer, I’ve had no compelling reason to upgrade, yet.
