Slow dvd recognition on Asus 1814BL

Hello everyone.I’m new on this forum.

A few days ago, I bought an Asus 1814BL.When I insert any media, it reads them around 20-25seconds.It seems long.Is there any way to solve this problem?Or I can return it and get a LG H55N .If this problem can’t be solved, it will be returned.What shall i do?

This is normal.

Normal? So, is it same on LG? Does it worth returning for LG H55N?

Although my drive is still working, the lightscribe portion had stopped after making 5 lightscribed discs. If you do a bit of searching on the web you’ll find this is a major issue with this drive.

I’d steer clear.
