    1. I don't see any advantage in disabling your Broadband connection.

    2. If you are burning a DVD it is best to leave your computer and let it get on with it. Best not to run other programs while burning. You can disable programs that run in the background which load when windows boots up but I wouldn't unless I was getting problems (which would be very very rarely!)

    3. Defrag your drive after every burn??? Naw!!! I don't think so. Although there is nothing wrong with a monthly Defrag.

    If you follow the guides in this forum then you shouldn't have too many problems.

    I agree, just stay off the net :)

    I also use a p3 gateway, 450mhz w/ 384mb sdram ... and I don't shut anything off.

    I only defrag when I need to.
