Having problems with your Dell Dimension 8400 PC Desktop ?

Disc Drive issue.

\015 Whenever I use one of my disc drives it seems to slow everything down. Sound and video get choppy. When trying to burn a disc it burns really slow eventually messing up the burn. Is this a power supply issue. Maybe the power supply is being drained when a disc drive is being used. thank you in advance Robert\015

Answers :

Try to reinstall the driver for the dvd drive, all you have to do, is, GOTO CONTROL PANEL
\015\012click SYSTEM
\015\012on the top you will see HARDWARE TAB
\015\012click on it and then click on device manager, under device manager you would see disk drive, click on the plus sign next to it and in the list below, right click on it, click uninstall and then restart the computer, check if it helps,
Very likely it is a memory issue... try to close down as many programs as you can while you are burning a disk... if possible you may want to upgrade the amount of memory you have
