So I think my computer is screwed-up. Please prove me wrong.
My dvd burner will read 8x and write 4x. It's about 2 years old and came in my hp pavillion notebook. I've noticed that sometimes when I burn a dvd it starts burning at 4x then gradually drops to 1x within 30secs. Sometimes it will keep burning at 4x drop to 3x then go back up to 4x. If i unplug the notebook from the a/c power source the write speed almost immediately drops to half the speed it was at, then when i plug it back in, it goes back up. Please tell me if there's anything I can do.
