hello to those who read this...
i have a laptop that has a cd and dvd writer drive on it... up until recently, i have never had any problems with it buttttt lately it has been acting really funny. if i am writing a cd, whether it be audio or data onto a cd-r or even data or a movie onto a dvd-r, the writer speed is about half and sometimes even less than it usually is. there were even a few instances when it was crawling at speeds of about 0.7x give or take and it has never done that... it usually performs at the max speed no matter what. i know that i have never changed the speed to anything else before burning anything so that would rule that out. if anyone has any insight for me, i would greatly appreciate it.
thanks for checking this out,
