Here we go. I've read around but haven't found an answer for this problem exactly. I bought a lite-on 5238s. Doesn't matter what program I use, nero, alcohol..... every time the burner gets to about 40x speed, it slows to around 21x and slowly creeps up to 30x. By then the cd is finished. Any ideas on why my burner won't go over 40x?
latest bios for board
latest firmware for burner
udma mode 2
good cable connection (previous burner ok)
