I have been screwing around with many copy programs for the past couple of weeks(blindwrite,clonecd,fire burner,win iso,nero,alcohol 120%)and I don't know it this is the problem or not but , but just reciently within the last 6 or 7 days my lite-on 40x10x48 and my Mitsumi 4x4x24 burner has been virtually turned into 12x readers and a very slow writer on all types of media.When I go to read a disk the light on the front of the the burner blinks about 3 to 4 times a second like it is having trouble reading the disk and once every second or so when it is writing, but I shouldn't have problems with all the disks that I own. One more thing is that it all works fine under win 98.Im thinking that there must be some sort of setting that I have overlooked to get these drives back in order.
