By default the drive supports PIO Mode 4 (check the BIOS when it boots). If I remember correctly, there is a jumper on the back of the drive that when enabled, will make it UDMA 2.
Of course, you're not really going to see that much of a performance boost by doing that.
Have you tried other discs? Are you using a Mode 1 data CD? If its a CD-R, is the disc finalized/closed?
