I would like to refer my problem and maybe find the solution.
I bought a Sony Vaio laptop (VGN-A215M) one week ago. I found plenty of useless programs already installed on windows, so I decided to format my HD and install a fresh copy of WinXP professional.
Everything worked fine instead of the Sony optical drive.
My problem is that when I use NERO or any other program that uses my DVD-RW my computer becomes very very slow .... unusable!!!! My CPU usage is at 100%
I can't even chose to write at 8X speed on NERO and it should be able!
I remark that when I'm burning a DVD (always with NERO) the read buffer is at 0% is this normal ? I had other burners and it alway showed 98-100%
When I use ShrinkDVD to buckup, my computer become also slow and I can't even listen to some music.
I don't know what's happening !!! tried to find the solution on sony website but found nothing. Then I came here, I found some new firmwares but none changed the situation.
Does anyone know what could it be ?
