    Can I do other work on my p.c. while making a copy of a movie or will it cause problems. Thanks to whoever replies.

    That all depends on several factors i.e. CPU speed, RAM, FSB, and the like. Tell us what your have onboard and exactly what kind of multitasking you would like to do. Rule of thumb - for the least amount of problems, do NOT multitask while burning anything.

    You can always check CPU usage through task manager and see what percentage of your systems resources are being used.

    Good luck:agree:

    I do a lot of other things while I'm burning but as MarkRacer said, it is very dependent on your PC. The newer DVD softwares and newer PC's are much more tolerant of muti-tasking.

    I've found that doing network access, or stuff requiring disk I/O is a no-no on my machine.

    If I wanna do something while burning, I load it first and then use it quietly while the burn happens.

    Bottom line is that you should be able to. If you can't, I suggest upgrading your computer.
