    Damm do I hate this 8x drive!! :mad: Time to buy an external 16x-20x burner and try to cool down. I hate my Windoze box, but at least it had a 16x burner on it. :(

    A $49 External Drive at Best Buy will do you fine. Unfortunately, 8X is currently the fastest available for slot loading drives.

    If anyone is interested in Toast Titanium then Smith Micro are offering a very good deal to buy it. Outside the USA and especially in Europe many software companies like to DOUBLE :eek: their prices. I really hate it, it's a rip off. For those outside the USA the below link offers Toast at a price cheaper than what people in the USA have to pay for it on the Roxio home page.
    I bought it from there and am very satisfied. Stores here in Norway are selling it for up to 1100 Norwegian kroner about 200 dollars, on the below link I paid about 400 kroner for it, almost a third of the price.
