Thanks chef, once again.
Well here's my update for today!
ITS GOOD NEWS!
Well i put in the new dvd writer but sill old me left my stalker game in the old drive! :doh:
So I have to swap everything back, to get it out!
and i had a thought, I'll give it one last try so i got a dvd and went to burn it and hey presto we were back to lightening speeds again!
I then went to try and burn the disk that i had problems with in the first place (there was a file read error) and for some reason this is what was causing my drive to go on a go slow!
So I unplagged all the cables and put them back in again and hey presto we were back on track again!
So If anyone ever comes across someone with the same problem that i had just tell them to unplugg the dvd drive, including power and then reconnect and it should work!
I would like to thank everyone who tried to help me and i'm glad that google pointed me to you all. I'll be sure to keep checking this forum out for all my future needs.
Many thanks all and have fun
