Audio extraction too slow

LTR40125S ZS0N

Drive is on IDE Secondary - Slave with DMA if Available

When i use Exact Audio Copy to extract wav files from my music CD the read speed goes just upto 1.5 - 2.5 X. which is very slow.
Even with new CDs and not just scratched CDs this happens.

Anybody know how can i increase the extraction speed ?

Use other programs such as CDeX or Nero and see whether there is any difference.

The extraction should start and 20X and ends at 45X at the end for the whole disc.

Maybe the disc is protected with copy protection.
