    Okay, I'm stumped. Went and got a brand new Lite-On 40x burner the other day, but for some reason, my system cannot get the thing to burn fast. I swear, the 8x that this is replacing is faster---needless to say, something is very wrong here.

    Specs:
    Abit NV7-133R
    Tbird 1.4
    512MB PC2100 Samsung
    GF 3
    Sparkle 350W PSU
    2 Maxtor HDD
    Toshiba 12x DVD
    Samsung 48x CD
    Liteon 48x CDRW
    SIIG ATA100 controller card (hooked up to Lite-On)

    All drives are on their own channel. The problem happens regardless of what speed or media is used. I have the latest drivers for my board, so I don't see that as a problem. Yes, I've plugged the cables in the right way...

    Did you try putting your drive right into the board instead of the controller card. I don't know if that could create any problems, as I have never used one. I have a LiteOn 24X and it is fast enough that I will never replace it, unless it dies.:hammer:

    Yes it could very well be the controller card with your particular setup. ;)

    Had a similar problem with my Lite-on drive, the solution was to use a UDMA 33 cable for connection, for some reason UDMA 66 or higher confuses the hell out it.

    Give it a try.

    Well having it on the SIIG controller was the issue. Just swapped it with my DVD-ROM on the motherboards 2nd IDE controller and viola! it works.:D
    Thanks, JM and Wiggo.:thumb: Can't believe I overlooked that issue.

    Oh, and mine works fine with a UDMA 66/100 cable.
