I just got a new Plextor PX-712A burner and have burned a few flawless DVD’s so far, but… When using Nero 6 (haven’t tried other progs. yet), it uses 100% of my resources, even when burning at 2x speed. The Buffer runs itself down to zero, then reloads. I have tried restarting my computer, disabling Anti-Virus software, and freeing up resources by closing all unneccesary tasks. I still get the same result. I am running the latest (v. 1.05) firmware for the drive on what I belive to be an adequate system:
Athlon XP 2800
Abit NF7-S v.2
Windows XP Pro
It seems the ‘Nero’ and ‘Task Manager’ tasks go crazy with my resources, taking up 100% of them up throughout the burn. I also have a Lite-On 52X CD-RW/DVD combo drive, but it only takes about 5-10% of my processor resources while for a burn-job. Does anyone have any ideas? Any info at all would be greatly appreciated. If anyone needs more specific info about what I’m running, please let me know.
