Are you burning from MP3 files or from WAVE files? Your system is almost certainly too slow to burn from MP3 files at faster than 20x, which could be the problem.

it's a good idea to use some program, such as Nero InfoTool, to make sure that DMA is indeed enabled (sometimes XP is problematic).

Try burning from wave (*.wav) files. I think your computer is too slow to burn from MP3s at a high speed, but it will burn from wave files at a high speed.
