Hi guys... I need some help - haven't been able to fix this.
Whenever I'm using my CD or DVD drive (either reading or writing), everything on the computer slows down. It's particularly noticeable when I'm in iTunes or Windows Media Player - the audio becomes choppy and slow and the video lags. It means I can't listen to audio when I'm burning something...
This is a relatively new problem - it wasn't doing this about a month ago. I think what changed was that I installed Nero 7 (although I'm not sure). I've gone back to Nero 6.6, but it still does it with no improvement.
Thanks in advance!
