My Lite-On 52X32X52X16 Combo Drive for some reason is only burning at 4x (using nero).
I did some checking at noticed that in Device Manager > IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers
that my Secondary IDE Channel transfer mode is Not Applicable while Transfer Mode is set to DMA if available.

Things I've tried to enable DMA.
* Install latest drivers from ASUS's website (MB P4P800)
* Uninstall secondary IDE channel and letting windows reinstall drivers.
* Downloaded latest Nero Burning Software.
* Updated firmware from Lite-On's website.

I'm pretty much at a loss and would really appreciate some help.

WindowsXP Pro SP2. (all latest updates)

It actually turned out to be the CD's I was using.. it was 4x max burn. :retard:
I never knew that the CDs had a limit to them. I guess you learn something everyday. :)
