    For a long time now, I've been disabling programs like Anti-Virus, Firewall, and Spyware protection while making console backups. I'm just wondering, is there any need to disable these protections, or am I just wasting time? Wouldn't my burner software buffer out any interuptions anyways?

    You shouldn't need to disable any of those. Years ago before the burner software had buffer underrun protection (Burnproof) you had to disable any programs that would cause an interuption in the data transfer to the burner's internal buffer. I remember burning CDs on a 486 under Windows 3.1 back in 1994 and having to boot with a clean configuration with no TSRs and disable any other running program. They even recommended disabling the progress bar on the burner software since it took up CPU cycles.
