    im trying to learn maya thru dvd tutorials.. my question is this, which will use less processing power? Running Maya and watching the dvds thru the ROM or running Maya and watching the dvd movies from the hard drive? I've noticed that when i pause and resume movies from the dvd drive there is a delay and sometimes crash when it tries to resume. so what do you think? thanks in advance!

    When you pause for too long the drive will spin down, when you resume it has to spin back up. In terms of CPU usage, there shouldn't be that much difference since both would be running UDMA.
