Liteonit/nero Problem

My new CDRW LITEON 52X32X52X LTR-52327S burner with nero express is MUCH slower than my old liteon 24X burner with nero 5.5

A CD to CD copy that takes 3 minutes to complete with the old burner and the nero 5.5 takes 10 minutes with the new 52X burner using nero express <—(oxymoron)

Also, the end of one particular audio cd will not copy correctly (It skips) using the newer burner with the nero express.

I originally posted this dilemma in some other forums here at cdfreaks but did not receive any replies

I would really appreciate a reply if anyone has any insight at all on what might be causing this.
