Hi Blossman and welcome to cdfreaks,
No, it’s not normal to take this long, but it may, depending on your system (I seriously doubt this is normal for you).
My guess is this is a DMA issue.
Assuming your system falls into “average”, here’s what I’d recommend.
First off, click the [B]Reset DMA [/B] button in Common settings in Fab and reboot per instructions.
If no luck, read through and follow the guides in my sig:
[B]How to check DMA [/B] and[B] More DMA Help[/B].
The second link contains a great article explaining this stuff and a VB Script file that you will need to run…if you get this far and it’s still not resolved.
Don’t worry, this won’t hose your system.
Any problems, just post back…or post back anyway and let us know…
Hope this helps.
