    Just like it says, your hard drive must be able to access data faster than 20 milliseconds. Unless your HD is really old and slow, I&#39;m sure you meet this requirement. If you want to find out for sure, download a benchmark utility like HD Tach.

    Also, when you burn with Nero, check the box that says "Determine Maximum Speed". That will automatically adjust your burn speed to match your HD.

    Buffer underrun protection will just pause the writing process so that if the data does not arrive fast enough you don&#39;t waste a CDR. In fact you will have a hard time making &#39;coasters&#39; but it&#39;s still possible. (user error or a defective blank CDR) .. or if the source CD can&#39;t be read. (when direct CD to CD copying)

    Edit: Shouldn&#39;t this be in &#39;Hardwareworld&#39;?

    Like if you accidently drop something on your keyboard while it&#39;s burning, and it hits the &#39;Enter&#39; key which, by default, cancels the operation. This isn&#39;t a joke, it actually happened to me yesterday.

    I never had probs with my 8x burner, then one day it kept going buffer underun

    so I went and bought a LG for 68 euros or so, 40 x, really fast, havent ruined a cd since

    I NEVER had any Buffer on the run after i purchased a Lite-On burner&#33;
    It has a Burn Proof option&#33;&#33;&#33;&#33; (Check Clonecd at the write Tab) if you burner doesn&#39;t support that it will be disabled&#33;

    Did you read the info on the link i gave you?
