    I am using windows xp
    I have been trying to use a dvd recorder to burn dvd discs, everytime I start I get a dialog box saying, “virtual memory problem windows is attempting to solve this
    I have been told the following.
    "Sounds like you are out of room. How much RAM do you have and what is your hard drive available space? Also, are you using FAT 32 or NTFS?"
    does anybody know how can i check this out and can I improve virtual memeory?
    regards mcdm

    Hi Vatoz
    256 ram
    80 gig hard drive 70 gig free
    I have tried to sort this out but I am unsure if I am right. under virtual memory help in xp there is a tab which can let me alter the virtual memory settings it is currently set so that the computer and background services use most of the virtual memory I can set it so that programs get the most do you think this is right?
    Thanks for your help mcdm

    By default both the Performance Options should be set to Programs and not background services.

    To check file system.....

    My Computer
    right click hard drive
    look for File system
