lol!! actually the cyberdrive cdrws need like a minimum of 32 mb, 200mhz cause i brought one last year, a 16x12x40x one and on the box it had that 8 mb minimum thing lol! i actually believe it was the minimum requirements for the cdrw itself so i brought it. but that was actually the requirements of the nero software that came with it! but luckily it still ran fine on my computer since back in the day, i used to have a pathetic 96mb ram, 233mhz pentium mmx lol! basically just dont have any other programs running at the same time when burning things otherwise it would cause things like buffer-underrun, which still i havent experienced yet and hope not to! so well thats my story lol!
