Ok I started getting bad burns and ps2 burns wouldnt even happen. I kept getting a disc initialization error. Anyway I read somewhere to maybe change my IDE settings on device manager where you can set it to DMA or PIO settings. Now I think maybe I changed the wrong IDE or did something wrong anyway because after that when I tried to startup Recordnow max it would just freeze at startup. So I did a repair reinstall of winxp and recordnow max still didnt work. I also reinstalled recordnow max and it still didnt work. Now ive messed around with those DMA/PIO settings on the primary/secondary IDEs on device manager trying to check every possible combination but recordnow max still keeps freezing. Please help...Any suggestions?
