I have this awkward problem: Every time I read a CD from either of my CD/DVD drives, it will start to slow down VERY drastically near the end of the CD, regardless of what type/kind of CD it is. I've tried burned and pressed audio and data CDs of all types. I confirmed the slowdown using Nero's CD Speed utility, and it always shows the same patter of dipping slightly (at around 55-65min), recovering for a small portion, then dipping down to 2X speed! I know this is definitely not normal, and I'm really hardpressed to find the cause of the problem.
I've formatted, reinstalled everything (correctly), updated drivers (if/when necessary). I'm running a P3 600 on a 440BX chipset board. I really don't know what to do next. Help, please!
I'm using WinXP Pro.
