Hi there :iagree:

I have 2 machines 1 at work and 1 at home both identicle in everyway

when burning DVDs 1 machine uses 5-10% of my CPU not a problem
the other machine uses 100% of my CPU ???

I am pulling my hair out to find the problem

can anyone HELP!!! :confused:

Check the DMA settings on the computer where you get high CPU utilisation, it should be set to UDMA2 and not PIO


thanks for replying but how do i do that

For 9X:


i dont seem to have the advanced button
I am using winxp home


Make sure you log in with administrator rights…
It should be there !!
