I will never use Nero, nor anything for making duplicate of audio CD for my
own purpose/backup. It announces jitter while doing this task and if there
is any jitter correction it is unadjustable in Nero. Also, I will never go
for 1:1 audio disc copy on PC - it is complete waste of time.
Use Exact audio copy - EAC (secure settings), and new generation CD reader
which is critical in this process. But most of today's DVD RW units are not
well tuned for such job, and will do secure copy only in 8-10 x speed. Older
gems like CDRW Asus 5232 are completely marvelous in doing extraction - 24x!
When extraction is finished, later you can go with Nero or with any other
program for burning it to the CD.
Minimum power of CPU is around power of Pentium 1, 133 or 166 MHz. But, IDE
controller on such machines is bit slower than today's standard, so you have
to look for something more up-to-date, motherboard and CPU in class of
Pentium 2 or so.
