I have windows xp, the writer is a Benq 52x24x52. I've tryed to copy a disk (cd to cd) and it took over 17 hours. Useing windows media play it took less than 5 min. Everytime I ask the writer to copy either a cd or data from a source it selects a speed less that its capabilityies. The rate to the blank disks is as stated 48x. Is there a parameter set wrong in the software (ie; NTI CD-Maker 2000 plus ). The reader is a ACER 56x.

Thanks, as I was checking out my system and ability to burn cds I found that as a result of upgrading to XP last year, the program I had been useing to burn CDs did not work with XP. That why I've been having my problems trying to burn CDs. That for the leading questions.
