Hi. I'm running an Athlon 2400+ with 512 DDR ram with Windows XP Pro. However, I've noticed that whenever I begin to burn a CD, or simulate a burning, my CPU usage shoots up to 100%. As you can imagine, my computer becomes pretty much unusable when this happens so I have to let it burn and not use my PC for a while.
I previously had Windows 2000 Professional which had the same problem, so I doubt it's an operating system fault.
My CD writer is a Lite-On something or other, 52x24x52. I'm not sure if it's a hardware problem or a known Nero 6 problem. If it's not a common Nero 6 problem, may be some sort of imcompatibility issue?
I can provide any further information if needed, like a report from HijackThis etc. I've cleaned my computer for any spyware (spybot) and have also maintained virus checking with Norton AV 2004. Furthermore, my computer doesn't currently have access to the internet so I'm not likely to get any cookies or the like from anywhere!
If anyone can help, it'd be much appreciated.
