Minimum CPU for DVD? - 10/24/2004 11:58:35 AM

I have a Pentium II running at 300 Mhz with 128 Ram on Win 2000. I would like to use this machine just a little bit longer yet still burn DVD's. These days it seems "most" DVD Burners require a minimum of 400, 800, or 1500 CPU as stated on the box or website. I have two related questions:

1. If the burner has burn proof software won't it successfully burn anything that is already on my harddrive? If not, what will happen?

2. With more and more tv capture cards having hardware encoders with a "pass through" or "direct" or "realtime" burning of a Dvd, I assume/hope/see no reason why not=that my 300 Mhz system should work. Will it or will there be dropped frames, freezing, or blue death?

Thanks. bobbo.

i think the problem would be for the whole system to keep the data transfer flow from HDD to the recorder especially with such low CPU/Memory...Of course getting a fast HDD drive, may enable you to burn at 4X without many problems.

As for the grabbing question, the problem would be dropped frames
