Hey people...
I have something so say, see if you guys know anything about this matter....
I have around 384 MB RAM... as for now (currently with few applications running) I have around 250 MB free. But when I try to burn cds with Nero 5.5 around 12x, my computer clocks up... I can't really do anything, cause it slows down really bad. It used to happen around 16x before, so I burnt around 12x, now I can't even do that anymore and do something else in the computer. Also I have done the NERO tweak from you guys, that didn't help I think. I have a TDK 24x/10x/40x burnner, and I burn in 16x TDK CD-Rs usually...

Thanks for any help on how to speed this process up.

Don't know does it help, but is DMA-mode enabled?

DMA direct memory access .
In system properties/hardware/device manager/ide controller/primary controller/advanced properties/dma if available.
Also set the same in secondary ide controller if your rom or burner are on that channel.
Both your rom and burner must be dma compatable and your bios must support dma.

There could be three things causing problems with Nero and you need to do all three to get Nero working at it's best.
1. Update the ASPI layer (file is available on this site)
2. Disable the built-in burning stuff in XP, Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Services. Scroll down to IMAPI cd-burning Com Service. Right click and choose disable
3. Get the updated "wnaspi32.dll" from Ahead Software/Nero site. Install to the Nero directory.

This should solve your problem.

Syedur ,
Check the above things and also check about the on the fly burning option if you get a popup that says that you have to set your CD-Rom and CD-RW drives to different IDE cables.
E.G CD-RW Primary Slave and CD-Rom Secondary Master or Slave, depends of how many HDs you've got.

I hope this helps ;)

Thanks for all of guys inputs....

I have tried various random things.... almost all of the things you guys said...

But still no luck... next time I will try to burn at 16x to see the result... but so far, no good...

I just think something is wrong with my computer... altho because I installed Roxio EasyCD 5.0 and it burns at the same speed but still slows down my computer a little while burnning...

Thanks again.

Did you install it in the demo mode or registered mode? My recollection is that in the demo mode it will only burn at 1X. Maybe that's the problem. Good luck.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
