Cdburnerxp has a new version.

This has been a great item for me. Besides "it's what I use", it has allowed me to give people another choice besides the native XP CD recording tool that many machines are now relying on.

I'll be testing out the DVD recording support on a new TEAC I just received, but that will have to wait a day.

Hope this helps you out,

Wonder if they fixed the resource usage problem I had with the last one. When burning a disc, it would make almost every other app unusable until the burning was done.

I'm a big supporter of freeware and open source program authors, but the impression I got from that program was that it's only marginally better than nothing.

About resources. Good point. But in XP...

In reply to: Re: Cdburnerxp has a new version.

Resources are not limited to 64 kilobytes. And you bring up a good point. Does it do that in the old DOS based windows?

I don't know since none are left here that I need to test such.

I meant resources in the more general and generic sense. I tried running the program on XP a few months ago, and it was horrible the amount of CPU time it took. Pretty much all other apps were useless until the burn cycle was complete.

Ahh... CPU usage.

I never gave that much thought. On the p3-600 laptop, it's always been a pretty all you can do at any one time is one thing. However on the 2.0GHz P4 desktop, the only nit I can complain about is that this software doesn't minimize or cancel.

But I can use Mozilla and such just fine. I wonder if your machine has a DMA issue?
