how do i disable all those virtual drives? you know, i don't even know how they got there...a friend of mine plays 'worlds of warcraft' sometimes on my computer, but that's pretty much it...what on earth is a 'virtual' drive, anyway...? do i get any extra virtual space with it?

how do i free up extra memory? also, how do i know WHICH programmes, small or otherwise, are running in the background? i sometimes use 'task manager' to tell, though i'm not 100% sure it picks up everything...

Turn them off!

starters
i'm scared to turn off my anti-virus, to tell you the truth...i'm using avg anti-virus at the moment...i don't have spyware/popup blockers turned on either...do you recommend me turning off anti-virus programmes when i am using my dvd burner??? isn't my computer susceptible then???

thank you so much, chewy...

that friend might be a good one to help with this
http://radified.com/ASPI/forceaspi.htm (note just use killaspi first)
you've probably got 2 or 3 things hurting us, problem is which ones?
btw aspi is obsolete, as is W98 and it's era of programs
one av program won't kill us, however if it's not updated it's not protecting
very well, turn it off to burn, just don't open any virus while it's off.

thanks for the 'memory freeing up' tips. i think i've already noticed that my system is going faster...i have SO much crap running without me knowing...

about that friend. he no longer lives in my city. he's a good state or two away right now. i don't see him, i speak to him, though...i'll see what he'll do for me.

i'm not quite sure what to do with the aspi thing. should i download the file from that page you provided and then use the 'killaspi' function? or is it not worth doing...that page says that aspi is needed to burn, as xp doesn't use it.

i am using avg anti-virus, which CONSTANTLY downloads updates and the like. once or twice a week, it would seem. should i turn that off when i burn???

from my nero burn log, did anything else strike you? is there any other programme conflicting with the burning, perhaps???

Nero has it's own aspi layer, other good burn programs like Imageburn
and DVDD use xp's seti interface. I haven't had any problems with my burns
and I don't have any winaspi installed.

it would be nice to see a nero burn log, not a authoring one, that's just another variable
you are adding to the equation. There are too many unknowns already.

the bottom one is all we need, it says burned ok
however 12x on 8x media is a nono!
winaspi is still installed as is INcd
looks like your firmware(1.14) is almost as old as I am

so it may be my firmware, then???

thanks for the firmware link...ummm...which one should i download? there are so many there to choose from!!!

i deleted incd a few days ago...i must have small demons on my computer that are screwing around with it...i swear i deleted it! i used the 'add remove programmes' option, and i got rid of it...i'll do it again, then...

would the dvd burning programme correct itself when asked to burn 12x on 8x discs/burner??? also, of late, i haven't even managed to get as far as the actual 'burn' part...

what exactly 'burned' okay??? i haven't been able to burn anything for a few days now...

chewy golden rule,
don't clean up computer, get rid of virus, fix things, then use system restore
to unfix!

sorry for the american slang, hosed is bad, very bad! car won't start

instead of spinning your wheels(getting nowhere slowly) sometimes it's better
to just bite the bullet(give up) and do a clean install.

If at first you don't succed, try try again.

well, 10 minutes into the burn, it failed again...

i'm gonna reboot and try again, as you said...

when you say a 'clean install', do you mean a formatting of my harddrive??? i have lots of stuff on this harddrive which i can't really lose...
