Default New NEC DVDRW problems

i bought a new NEC 3550A DVD burner, and I dont think it is working properly. I am basing this on the fasct that my I/O Magic DVD buner can make an ISO of the same dvd in DVD Dectypter at a faster read rate than the NEC drive. The NEC drive takes over an hour, while the I/O drive takes only 15 minutes.

What can explain this? The NEC is the master on the slave IDE, while the I/O is the slave on the same channel (ribbon cable).

Is the drive defective? I cant figure out any other reason to what is happening.
