i read that things like defraging your hard drive and closing other programs can increase your rate of good burns. also one of the tutorials said "computer under 3 years old and prossesor at leased P4 3.0GHz"
why does it matter? it doesnt make sence to me, its just burning. i can see why you would want a good burner, but why CPU and system recorces. could someone explain it to me?

Because your system needs to be fast enough to make sure it can provide a steady supply of data to the burner. If your systems is backed up with having to dedicate resources to other applications this data stream could become interrupted causing a failed or bad burn.
