I was reading at another forum that many are able to burn a DVD while doing something else.....
Well I can't seem to do that.
Even with my Sony CDR 48x, it was the same thing, slow """"everything""""" when burning.
I have a Athlon XP 2600, 1 gig of RAM. Windows XP Pro.
My boot drive is on a Promise Ultra TX PC133 card, with a 2nd HD as slave, slot two (2) on the card, hold hard drive 3 (master) HD 4 slave.
My Liteonit 8X DVD Burner is set on master IDE 1 on the motherboard, DMA enabled, (only goes up to DMA 2), and I'm pretty sure that putting the burner on the control card and having the boot HD on the motherboard would make little difference as this is how the CDR set up was, and my system still came to a crawl when burning.
Also, here is a snap shot of my IRQ:
Yeah, no idea why this is happening....
just checked the manual to be sure (motherboard) and AGP shares slot 1 (which is empty), and in control panel/system, I checked view devices by connection and all have their own IRQ ..
I included a snap shot just in case....
Let me know what you think it could be...
