I have a Liteon 48125W (48x12x48x) and i was having trouble with it but recently fixed the problem - [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] I am now having trouble with the writing speed of it. I use Nero, and I have downloaded the latest version. Everytime i try and burn something to a CD, it takes ages when it should only take a few mins. A 600MB file took 20 mins to burn on 32x. Dos anyone know why this is? It doesnt seem to be burning higher than 8x. Does it have anything to do with my IDE slots and/or Master/Slave connections?
