Highmat interfers with XP CD burning operation

Hello Everyone,

I am asking for help here for a pal who's having a problem I have not encountered. He is new to computers in general and has had problems compiling a data CD.

When trying to archive a lot of picture files to a CD, he uses the XP CD burning program rather than a burning program like Nero. Part way through the process HighMat chips in and says he cannot burn as many pictures. I think he said there is a limit on the number of files, as opposed to the size of data involved.

A Google search revealed that Microsoft has stopped supporting Highmat (and I believe it has something to do with SP2) but I can find nothing useful about it. Is there a way to delete it from a PC with XP?

If anyone has come across this and knows how to prevent it happening, can you please let me know,

thanks and best wishes, Roger

Never heard of Highmat. Then again, I never use Windows's built in burner.

If you want, I can do research and see if we can try to fix it. Otherwise, I may have a simpler solution.

Have him Download and Install DeepBurner. It's free, and very good. Let's see if he has the same problem with that program.

Hi Computerwiz,

Thanks for the suggestion, I will pass that on immediately and report back asap! I wont ask you to go ahead with a lot of research until the response is known, but I appreciate your offer.

Stay tuned as they say!

Thanks very much! Roger
