ok so my friend has this problem with his cd burner/software and so far all i know is that he gets a speed error message when burning cds. he can burn 1 or 2 cds but then after that the burner gives him a message saying slow down your burn speed and all of the cds fail after that. he installed another cd burner and both burners did the same thing. he slowed down both to 4x and has tried many different programs. i have not even looked at this computer so this is all i can tell you about it. just wondering if it sounds like a software issue maybe a driver? or a hardware issue so as to maybe figuring this out. any help at all would be appreciated.
