    It may be the drive Nero is using as temp file is too full.Makes sure there is enough room and delete old files.
    Also ckeck your pagefile settings.Is there lots of room on that drive and is the Pagfile big enough?
    Finally Portables tend to have less CPU power and Ram.When you burn stop all unnecessary Applications.

    IM runnin a pentium 4 ar 2 GHZ, i have little crap what so ever on my computer, I also shut down as many little and big programs as i can when trying to burn.

    But it still suffers, and i think it may be the drive. It does tend to studder when im playing dvd's on it, and a good bang on the keyboard does the trick.

    Have you confirmed DMA settings for that drive?
    Also check for a firmware update for the Rom.

    If it can't buffer the info, either it's a space problem, or a fragmentation problem. Check for at least 1 gig of free space so there is room for an image file AND the buffering room your burning software requires. Also, if you have limited free space and it's badly fragmented (especially on a laptop with a slower HD) your burning software may be trying to access your drive faster than it can seek the required data, causing the buffer to empty. Try defragging your drive to fix this problem.
