    Where are you importing it from? (ie: Shared Drive, USB drive, CD, C-Drive)

        If it loads slower on the "better" computer, you have a setting wrong. Under System properties-Advance-Performance, compare the settings of the two computers. Make sure that you have XP set to "traditional" mode and turn off the graphics [email protected] Make sure that Drive C is set for Performance and write caching is turned on. With a system like this, you should have a SATA drive not a EIDE drive.

        Also, check your bios settings and MB manual, I dont think WinXP fully supports 4gig of Ram and this may be messing things up.

        Then if your still not satisfied then get a RAM Drive installed for the fastest "hard drive" possible.
