I can see that it will take me a while to get this PC set up the way I want. The book Windows XP Annoyances is coming in handy. I'm not happy with the fan noise, and will order some quieter fans today.

I installed EAC and Nero and tested ripping and burning CDs. I was surprised to find that the read and write offsets on this drive are zero! EAC extracts at 10 - 12x, which is not bad. Nero, by default, tries to normalize and to insert gaps between tracks, but it's easy enough to turn those options off.
