    Hey guys, I hope someone can help me with this problem. I own a Mad Dog 16x Megastor USB 2.0 external DVD burner. I've had it for quite some time and it's been great. It usually whips out DVD's in about 8-9 minutes. I recently just started usuing a different computer to do my burning and the computer runs on the same OS, XP. This new computer can burn even faster, sometimes 6-7 minutes, and it's great. But now it's taking anywhere from 10-20 minutes for ONE burn. What happened? If I use it on the old computer, it still burns in it's regular time-frame so I know it's not the drive itself. Is there a way to fix this? I just want it back to it's regular time. I'm even happy with 8-9 minutes. But these 20 minute shenanigans are getting old. :) Please help.

    Check, in Device Manager, to see if it reverted to PIO mode.
