Answers :

It may just be that that is the speed of your drive.  See if it says on the drive how fast it is.  If it is too slow, then you may want to consider getting a newer, faster drive.

Cd burner I have a acer 5100 laptop. The cd burner is working right, i get a error message to make sure the cd's are clean and not damaged and maybe slow down burn speed. Ive tried several different brands of blank cd's,and slowed down burn speed and get same message, i even went as far as restoring puter back to factory condition and still the same thing. It worked fine when i first got it, i must have burned about 150 cd's. The puter isnt a year old yet.
