Slow SATA disk and IDE CDROM on acer extensa5510
I recently bought an acer extensa 5510 laptop. I installed a 64-bit Fedora6 onto it. Everything seems fine, except for the speed of the cdrom and the sata hdd. The 24x IDE CDROM can read data from any kind of discs at a speed of 1.33MB/sec. Plus, when I copy data from the cdrom to the hard drive the system is so slow, that the mouse can barely operate and the sound pauses for seconds like some DMA access would be not present.
What can I do with these issues?
Any help/suggestion would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
