Ok well this is most likely my lack of knowledge being at fault here however when i try to burn anything onto good media (worked at 16x under linux with k3b) i get speeds of 1.9x to 0x in imgburn and the whole computer lags.
There are no other apps except for firefox and avg running, as well as some other services i dont know of probably. The hdd and the DVD drive are both on the IDE controller (Primary and secondary respective) and i have a Nforce 3 150 board. I might try updating the ide drivers once this burn finishes... but untill then here is the error log
