Just fine with either. But you may wish to switch off unnecessary services. see

It should work just fine with XP Pro.

Works great here with XP Pro. With the beta and the final release I
haven't had any problems or coasters.

I've been having problems lately. Which burner are you using and at what speeds do you typically burn? I have a Plextor 48/24/48U (USB 2.0) external drive that works fantastic with Retrospect, and EZCD but will not burn any faster than 4-6X speed in CDA5 without buffer underruns. Yesterday I burned a disc with CDA5 "successfully" (with red book compliance) and it would not play in my cd player. I've read many of the responses to similar problems insisting that CDA5 works just fine and that "you shouldn't burn audio at high speeds, anyway" but I don't buy that there's not something going on with the way CDA5 interfaces with USB. I have a five year old Plextor 8/2/20 (SCSI)that worked fine with this same setup until the drive gave up the ghost.

Hello beggerhorn,

What you have described is eactly what I am experiencing. And then folks tell me...

"Go buy a new CD writer"
"What are your system specs"
"Call tech support , etc - "

I am without a useful comment. I dont wanna spend more money on products that replace products with similar functionality.

Do you prerender to file before burning? Unless I do that, I have the same problem with a Plextor 16x drive and Windows 98 SE. But I never had to do that with my old 8X SCSI drive.

Actually no I dont pre-render, perhaps I will try that route and test it for success extensively.

You don't try all the obvious things before getting all intense - and you wonder why you get replies like those above ?!!
