You're right: my PC is very slow. I dunno exactly what is slowing it down, but after browsing a few web pages with much graphic effects it starts stuttering and so does Nero. This is extremely annoying 'cos it forces me to reduce the writing speed; I have a 52x CD burner but always use it at 16x because if I set max writing speed I see Nero freeze and the buffers empty themselves, so writing fails. If I enable ExacLink Nero can continue burning and wait for the buffers to refill, but it takes more time for them to do it than for the CD to be written at 16x without any buffer emptying. I really h8 it so I'm searching a very graphically-simple program like CloneCD for burning

From Alcohol 120% you can go to 'Image Burning Wizard', select the ISO that was just created, and burn it. All the 10 .mpg files are now on your CD
When I saw Alcohol 120% wasn't able to write files directly I thought I could do that in that way (I knew MagicISO instead of UltraISO), but it would have been too long I also thought I could drag'n'drop files from the directories to the virtual drive (created by Alcohol), let the software create the image and then burn it, but the virtual drive is read-only!
