Save Memory If you don't use your CD-ROM often you can free up some of your computer's memory to do other tasks. The CD-ROM has something called cache memory that is set aside for the CD-ROM to use. It helps the CD-ROM run more efficiently if it's frequently in use. To free up some of this memory for other programs to be able to use, follow these instructions: Right-click on My Computer
Choose Properties
Choose the Performance tab
Click the File System button
Choose the CD-ROM tab
Adjust cache memory down as far as 244.
You'll have to restart your computer for the setting to take effect. If you find your CD-ROM runs poorly, just go back in and raise the cache memory until you find an acceptable level.
