I am afraid it's herd to debug as I am not in your shoes to see exactly
what you did (and also because I have used serpentine only once, and
that was nearly 2 years ago when it was introduced IIRC !), but the
high CPU load might be good news, since Serpentine will take quite a
bit of time ( a few minutes) of hard CPU work, to convert all your
sounds files  before it can actually write them to the CD !
But I would have thought you would get a progress bar to indicate
progress ! If you got high CPU load while Serpentine was apparently
doing nothing, then indeed something might be wrong !

To help figure out, as I said in a previous mail, try other burning
apps, like Gnomebaker, and then if that fails, try K3B.
