When using Nero's Infotool, I show that the drive can read at 52x but can only write at 40x. Ideas? BTW, I'm using the firmware that came installed on the drive, I have both the CDR and the CD connected as master to the primary and secondary IDE channels on the MB and I have the two hard drives connected through a ATA/100 controller card. Thanks for the help!!

Do you have a CD-R disc in the drive?

I don't have a CD-R in the drive. It is empty. - Well, I just put in a Imation 80 Min 16x CD-R and refreshed and it now shows a 52x write speed but only a 12x read speed. Does that sound right?

Yep, sounds right. Put in some kind of pressed cd and see what it reports then.

OK, I threw a pressed audio CD in the drive and it now shows 52x for both read and write. Thanks for the help. Sorry if I was being a dummy!!
