Also, you might want to try a surface scan using scandisk... perhaps part of your hard drive is damaged? Are you getting a wierd sound from it when you try to save?
Anyway, I highly doubt it's anything with the XCAP remover, or your CPU, since the former is pretty harmless and the latter is irrelevant during an I/O bound operation like saving a game[/b]
I haven't defragmented this drive ever, because I got it only a few weeks ago. But the saved games could be fragmented because I loaded them from another drive, so I'll defragment tonight. If you want the gory details of my problem:
Whenever it saves, it takes a while merely to get it off the gameplay screen and into the save screen, meanwhile the cpu is constantly working (thinking). When it gets to the save screen, it only thinks sporadically. I suppose while I'm going about defragmenting, I'll run scandisk and a surface scan. That'll rule out any harddrive and fragmentation problems. If I could just get my saved file to Weasel to see if that's the problem...arggh.
