    Disable all programs running in the background before making a burn. Do alt+cntl+del to see what's running. Make sure you don't have a screensaver or other program that starts automaltically afterwards. Set read ahead on the HD to none instead of full.

    I agree with 4842guy, turn off all your TSR's, and any screensavers you may have running.

    Also, make sure you scandisk and defrag your hard drive at least once a week, preferably right before you plan on doing any burning.

    A few things you might want to try and tweak as needed: In the EasyCD Creator program go to TOOLS, OPTIONS, ADVANCED, and lower the speed a step at a time, testing as needed. Under TOOLS, run the three SYSTEM TESTS to make sure everything seems to function alright. Lastly, under RECORDER PROPERTIES, lower the settings as needed for problems with audio burning.
