Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.
What software are you using to burn your DVDs with?
You can go to device manager and see what the settings are for your drive by right clicking the drive in question.
The settings are related to whether your drive is running under UDMA or PIO mode.
It is Okay if both are set to a number above 0 (zero) but the UDMA or DMA should be a higher number then PIO.
For example, DMA can be set to 4 or 5 and PIO set to 0 or 1, but if PIO is set to 4 or 5 and DMA is set to 0 this can cause a slow response from the drive.
You will also notice these settings are also available in your computers BIOS settings for disk drives.
You should make sure the drive has a higher value for DMA (Direct Memory Access) it may also be called UDMA for Ultra Direct Memory Access, then the PIO value. (PIO stands for Programmed Input/Output)
Please read this information on DMA versus PIO mode.
Altough this web site offers a fix, you can make the changes manually in the BIOS setup utility yourself, I have only provided this web page for an explaination about the importance of the UDMA settings.http://winhlp.com/node/10
Hope this helps.
