Hey

I have the LG CD-RW CED-8120B and its reading really slow. Im re-installing Vice City (too much modding :p) and its going really slow. Its been running for about an hour and its not at 50% yet.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Thanks

I dont know it is like that but on mine for some reason the cd/rw just reads slow , it works fine overall but I added a 52x lite-on Cd just for the purpose of reading cd's , installing, and what not and Iam happy , my cd/rw is new and it burns great but nothing like a good ole LITE-ON for me :)

I'm pretty sure all you need is an ASPI update for your drive. I had the same problem, wondering why my 48x burner kept taking half an hour to burn a cd, and sometimes it even errored out. It'll usually be Adaptec but check your drive and make sure you have the latest ASPI update. Check M$ site for more info on ASPI, it doesn't come native in XP http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;182542
