Redently I bought a nice new DELL 4300 with a Lite-On LTR-24102M CD writer in it, being Pentium 4 1600Mhz with 256 MB RAM and a fancy modern CDRW I thought burning discs would be fast and fun copared to my old Philips CDRW in a AMD K6 450. But I have a bit of a coffee coaster factory here.
About 5 out of 6 times if I burn without testing first the software hangs part through the writing process - hangs the whole PC mouse pointer doesn't even move.
About 1 out of 5 times if I test and burn then the same thing happens.
When I had my old PC I only ever bothered testing when I had a new type of media and it NEVER failed to write!
The way I'm getting through media it would be cheaper for me to go to the store and buy an album on CD than try and download and write it!
I have Roxio Easy CD Creator 5.1b on Windows ME with the version 7 bios flash on my Lite-On drive
