when i demux a film using dvd2avi, or when i usually convert a mpa to wav file using winamp or whatever, why does it take up all my cpu usage, it jumps all the way to 100% usually over and as a rsult of that, i cant download anything while its doing that, in fact, i seen my downloads stop on irc wheni demux and convert, but it doesn't happen when im encoding a movie with tmpgenc..can anyone who's computer savvy help me.... holla back

demuxing= stripping video from audio

Hi SIRCOOKS,

That's a combination of the I/O (Input/Output) bottleneck, in conjunction with the crappy design of Windows OS
It just sucks the performance of the system down to the ground
Unless you have FAST SCSI subsystem hard drives, or a ATA 133 hard drive, then "maybe" the performance won't degrade so much

Edit: If you want more speed, make sure you have DMA enabled, and "write caching" enabled too. Warning With write caching turned on, if you have a hard crash, you could kiss your file system bye bye
