[qanda]This question is published in the hardware section for the LG GH22L. Click here to view full specs.[/qanda]With this drive (LG GH22L) I can only read DVD R (tried different vendors) only at 3.5x (max 4x), both on WinVista and WinXP. My other device (an old LG) reads at almost 16x.

@ whitegandalf81,

Ensure that your LG GH22L Drive (and all other IDE devices) is operating in the DMA Mode.

Suggest reviewing the below Forum posting for details ->

I have exactly the same problem with my drive that I bought yesterday! The DMA is enabled and still the drive reading speed is only up to 4x. It writes normally though.
