1-Too many background processes running eating up CPU usage
2-Not enough ram
If your using the DeepBurner free version it might have a few bugs that cause randomly poor performance. Many freeware burners do.
ImgBurn would be my top freeware recommendation http://www.imgburn.com/

CONTROL PANEL > SYSTEM > HARDWARE > DEVICE MANAGER
Locate the IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers & check properties on each. If any are in PIO mode, switch them to DMA if possible. If not, simply uninstall the driver & reboot. They will default to DMA. I didn't know this but if WIN XP detects any succession of read/write errors on your CD/DVD drive, it switches them to PIO mode & only a manual reset will revert them back. Hope this helps some peeps here
