    Hi there! I am new to this forum, but you guys have a ton of info…. I have two issues that is affecting my co-workers in another office. Does this ring a bell to any of you? I thought with the DVD issue to try and slow the burn down…

    Here is what is happening….

    Burning DVDs or CDs using our Server. Our Server is a Mac with OS 10.4
    on it. At least 1 out of 4 times we burn a DVD or CD using the Server
    (the only place we can burn DVDs) we get disc that may look okay, but
    when you open the folders, you find they have the same content over and
    over. For instance I could open a folder named "Al's Bakery" and find
    the content that was in the "A-Pine" folder. And every folder after
    that will also have the A-Pine content in it.

    The other issue is a with Mac OS 10.2.8, 768 MB Memory,
    and 800 MHz Power PC G-4. She uses Quark 4.0, Outlook Express 5.02,
    Netscape 7.2 and Word v.X. She often has text in a Word document she
    would like to copy and paste into a Quark document. Usually when she
    starts out right away in the morning she can do that, but after 2 or 3
    hours she runs into "out of memory" messages in Word, or Word quits or
    her computer locks up.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    What sort of Mac is the server and what app are you using to burn the DVDs? Does it happen when you use different apps?

    As for the second Mac, does it have at least 8GB of free hard drive space? If you open up Activity Monitor, how much Free and Inactive RAM does it say you have left when you get this problem in Word? :)
