    dvd drives running slow...please help

    Just got a old tiny 1ghz with 256 of pc 133 ram & cannot get it to pull a dvdr to the harddrive any faster than 2.2x. I have a liteon dvdrom & pioneer 106. Dma is enabled on all the drives but still no joy. Taking ages to burn also with all media.

    Tried removing ide channels & rebooting & changing jumpers on the drives.

    anyone help solve this dilema as running out of ideas.

    Thanx
