ohhh, uninstall roxio. there are too many free or really cheap applications that copy real fast. as you have seen, microsoft is not one of them but you should yahoo or google for something that is fast (and then ask around again, so you still don't wind up with CRAP anyways! ). I use stuff from slysoft (anydvd...) and it all works great for me but it cost a few dollars to get the entire suite and I know you may not want to spend anymore money. I think I am probably like you and most other people that have used the 'all-inclusive' packages (roxio & nero), those packages want to do too much to your computer AND, they want to contact their 'servers' all the time (what is with that)??!?.
