    just wondered from a global recording standpoint (using SONAR and Cubase) which is a better bet. I have both.

    on the same subject, NTFS or Fat 32??

    I third the motion above.

    I'm a long time Sonar user...w/XP (WDM) it's incredibly stable. NTFS is the native system to is a little more efficient.

    I've noticed no changes with SP1.
    On the other hand there was a Microsoft file update fairly recently wich supposedly made harddisk data more robust according to the blurb.
    I generally use Windows Update regularly (manually) and have not had any problems with it.

    XP's been good to me, SMP started working properly as soon as I installed it.

    Cheers, Trace.

    The Service Pack 1 is more for security reasons on certain aspects of the OS but there is an important part of it that does help certain programs run better.
    Not sure why that is truly but it helped me solve a plaguing issue I had recently. It was wierd but it was solved by adding the SP1
    I do recommend it now.

    XP and NTFS it is. another 512mb is on the way for my DAW so hopefully the benefits will be big.
