However, I try to plug the DVD Writer to another Windows XP, it can
recongized as DVD/CDROM. And when I burn the same data files, it only

Is it the windows XP build in driver has problem?


Try a new ide cable. I really dont know if it will help. I don't know If
you only have an old 40 wire cable or what would happen if you do but it

Thanks Glen. My DVD-R is supporting upto 8x speed, as the DVD-R cover
said. All I know is one of my Windows XP got this problem, and rest of
those didn't.
BTW, in the driver's detail, all files are the same, but only a file
called "pxhelp20.sys" is not.
DVD-R writing very slow speed, Windows XP SP2,, 17kb, 03/01/2003
DVD-R writing in normal speed, Windwso XP SP2,, 21kb, 27/10/2005
