Disabling Event Software
"Event Software" is what I call any software that
runs at a certain time, usually without your input. This can include SCREEN SAVERS, fax auto-answering services, and some
Anti-Virus software. One way to check is to run the HD defragmenter in
Win95/98. If it restarts every few seconds, it's because something is hitting the
drive. Make sure any such software is disabled (you can re-enable it after you're
done recording) while you burn.
To ensure that all programs have been disabled, hit
CTRL-ALT-DEL, and look at the task list. The only two items you should have running
are "Explorer" and "Systray" (some may not have Systray - if you
don't, don't worry about it).
