I acquired this Pavilion with an OEM CD-writer and WinXP on it. I reformated and installed Win98SE, since I didn't have the XP disk or license. Now when I try to burn an audio CD, the program uses 100% of the CPU (Process Explorer). I tried the burner with XP before I reformated, and it worked fine. I've tried DeepBurner and CDBurnerXP Pro with the same results:burn starts but always fails. Does anyone know of any free burning programs that won't suck all my CPU resources? I wouldn't even mind converting files with a separate program first if I could just burn an audio CD. Thanks for any help.
