    what is the minimum computer spec reqd for a cd-rewriter? I'm thinking of buying an Artec 52x24x48 for my 'lowly' 233MHz PC,and am wondering if this is feasible?

    Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions_X_X_X_X_X_[small]Ronnie[/small]

    The specs should be written on the burner's box.
    Anyway, I assume the PC is powerful enough, just avoid multitasking when you burn and all should be OK... I would just check the System that is needed (some burners are not supported in Win95, some others do not run or WinXP...).

    It's just a problem of drivers. You can test how much CPU is needed to burn lately, using some disgnostic software (Like some utilities in Nero).

    Ah, I searched on the net and found the following info for a VERY SIMILAR Artec model (52x24x48 seems not to exist. I found this or 48x12x48). If those suit you, your model's will, too.
