    Unhappy DVD drive - sudden slow down in read/write speed

    I've got a dvd combo drive and a dvd re-writer installed on the same pc. Suddenly the transfer rate fell and it takes 3 times as long to copy files off a cd/dvd.

    The writing speed also fell, taking ~40-60 mins to write a single side dvd instead of nero's estimated 15mins at 4x. I fixed it by using System Restore (a solution I found off the net), but then all my restore points disappeared for no reason >___>
    When I reinstalled XP the problem also disappeared.

    I really hate to reinstall XP every week as the system restore method isn't working anymore. If anyone have recommendations on what I should so, please help.

    thanks.

    System restore will kill any restore points once u disable it. If u want to use it again, untick it again.

    I've never disabled system restore, and the restore points still disappear.
