let me see if i got it right,so your sayin that the burning process itself went fine but when you play the recorded disc it skips? if so this usally happens when using a bad quality media, try to get a hold of taiyo yuden/japan made maxells/verbatim medias

Dosent use much CPU I do shut everything else down and it still does it. I will try to shut norton off but I don't see why that will help seeing as I run it on my laptop and it ok (both are running Norton internet security 2005)

ah, norton... does that package ( norton 2005 ) have a firewall as well? If so, maybe try going to the section for "Program Control" and set the 'trust level' of Plextor higher ( more trusted ) .

Reason is that norton may be trying to monitor this program too much while its running..

just a thought.

Nope there is no listing for Plextor or anything related to it in the program control of the fire wall.
But just for the **** of it I shut down norton and tried it and still no luck..
