Nero 6 Slowdown

I have used the latest SP2 version of Nero 6 for quite a while on my XP2400 win XP SP2 system with no trouble but during the last month the buffer level is constantly running out at about 5 second intervals whilst recording a DVD or CD direct either from another CD or the Hard Drive. Whereas a full DVD took about 15 mins it now takes up to 40 mins (only a x4 recorder). Any idea what could be causing this? There seems to be little running in the background but when recording, the CPU usage shoots up to 100% every few seconds.

Are you using the latest updated version ?

Click on the flame icon at the bottom of Nero startsmart,and check if not upload it for free.

The latest version of Nero is 6.6.0.16. As dadyassa says you can update it for free from:

click here

You will need to download at least Package 1 and Package 2. Be aware these are about 35mb each (total 70mb). If you are on dialup that could take some time.

I already have both these updates on my hard drive. If you want a copy on a CD email me your address and I will post one out to you.

I Have version 6.6.0.8 - I'll download the update from my work PC and see if that works. Thanks.

I've installed the latest version but it' still the same. CPU usage varies between 60 and 100% when writing and buffer is constantly running out.

Used System Restore to go back about 8 weeks and all is fine. CPU usage now 20%. Still no idea why!!!
