How do I get my DVD-ROM to read faster?



I just recently formatted and rebuilt my system. I have Win2k for my OS, a P3 600EB, 896 MB RAM, a 4x or 6x Sony DVD-Rom capable of I think 40x CD read. My problem is that my computer used to read the data at atleast 12x CD, but now it does no more than 4x CD, which is causing errors with my cd burner and making mp3 burning INCREDIBLY slow. Does anybody have a solution to my problem?


DMA enabled for your Sony DVD ?
