I just installed nero 8 ultra [custom install leaving out the video & tv programs] on Dell 380 winxp sp2 workstation, 256 RAM. I burned one DVD+R_DL [memorex] on an LG USB drive w/out problems. The next 2 were “burn failure at 4x”. The only other application running was taskmanager. I noticed that the CPU taskbar icon [from taskmanager] was at 100%.and stayed at 100%. It took forever to save the compilation before closing.
I didn’t expect a burn to be cpu intensive. I’m burning data disks. There were a lot of files - that’s why I got DL.
The Dell has a Pentium 4 521 [2.8 GHz] . I would have thought it was adequate.
