Access to burned CD is s-l-o-w

Recommended Posts

Used CDBurnerXP to create a data CD with several hundred files. Took about 12 minutes to write the files. I consider that acceptable. However, access to the

files on the CD afterward was absolutely interminable. Even to access a single file took several minutes. Am I doing something wrong?

I took the burned CD and tried it on my laptop. Worked just fine.

There is either some problem with the CDROM drive on my desktop or else some undetermined configuration parameter which will speed up access to the data.

Unless someone has some ideas I'll try running some device tests on the drive. I don't want to replace until I know if the drive is bad.
