Thanks for the reply, Arinoth.
The DVD drive itself is about 3 years old; all drives are indeed IDE, not SATA. Even so, my old Dell rig, referenced above and also all IDE, performed these tasks waay faster.
Asus Probe says the CPU is running at 45C, and "OK", even though I'd say that's a little on the hotter side. PC was taken apart and blown with low-pressure air last night. Dust OK.
I'm really stumped here. Cheers.
