Windows Vista...

OK, this is daft.

How long does it take to burn a CD? On my Mac and the old XP machines we used to have it took a couple of minutes.

I have been putting around 200 mB of stuff onto a CD - making it about a third full - and just putting the data onto the disk has taken 25 minutes. Then I have to actually burn it so it can be used!

JEEZ!!!!!

Have a good weekend! I hope to, once this CD is done...

YAY IT IS DONE! ONLY 35 MINUTES!!!!

Argh! Sometimes this technology of ours is enough to frustrate. . . . .

What did we ever do without it before?!

Oops! You got me - I DID know the Bette Midler song, "Wind Beneath My Wings!" D'oh! I just didn't pay attention enough to my response! I actually grew up listening to Nancy Griffith sing that song. It is a good one!

35 minutes? Seriously? That seems excessive. Another drawback to Windows Vista, it seems.

I'm embarrassed to admit most of the songs I like...but hey then they go and make a movie from my fave soundtrack so I can't be the only one who enjoys sappy songs with a danceable beat...

oh and how frustrating....I just can't stand stuff like that..if I can't figure it our quickly and it involves a computer..i hand it over to hubby...

and by the way...you won my contest

Computers and me = no get along.

The hatred is mutual.

My vista has been doing that to me from time to time as well. Usually it just goes fast - but every once in a while... bammm! 25 minutes! It's crap! I find certain brands cause this too -

My latest on this - I just started doing a disk and it said it was going to take 51 minutes. So I hit cancel and tried again. It did it in 2 minutes that time! Strange...

Vista is a nightmare. my son the computer guru has removed it from most of our friends systems and installed a different operating system. My next comp. will be a mac:)
