    What program are you burning with? You can change the burn speed in some software usually under the settings tab.

    Did you run drive speed test on both DVD burnners in Nero. Try that also put in your blank DVD and go to Nero and run nero drive speed makes ure the seting for the DVD your having trouble with is set to max speed.

    Try updating your firmware for that drive. It just may not be recognizing your blank media correctly, but this is ushually what most firmware's fix. What is the make & Model of your drive?
