@ the moment have you got and external usb 5.25 DVD writer if so download ImgBurn from mirror 6 and download burn plot ... when installing untick the ask toolbar when prompted don't be click happy on mouse.. Then stick in a 16x dvd and if you have a 20,22,24x burner tell it to burn @ MAX and then see where you usb drops off via the graph data provided by imgburn and burnplot or imgburn and DVD info pro (think you can get a trial still) or opti drive control (see graph and log below) you will get adn indication of how your usb performs if you have and external 5.25 dvd writer hooked up via usb)
