1.You should be using Win98SE or newer.
I'm running XP Pro/SP2
2.You should have at least 128MB of RAM(256MB for video).
3.Your HD should be 7200RPM and have DMA enabled.
Both my hard drives are 7200 rpm w/DMA enabled.
4.You might be limited to 4x writing.
Before you buy make sure to install the latest BIOS and chipset drivers for your motherboard(go to your manufacturers website).
Its an obsolete board that is no longer supported but I've got the latest BIOS they released.
So, it sounds as if I could do it even if somewhat limited in speed. Thanks. I'll keep the info in mind. Of course, what I really need to do is upgrade the computer. All it will take is a new mobo, new processor, new memory, and probably a new power supply. But hey, I'd get to keep everything else!
