I don't know if there's anything tremendously wrong with it. My Aopen DVD does a similar thing. Apparently I have a DVD drive that is 40xCD, yet it reads my CDs much slower than my CDburner that is also 40x. However, it does read my DVDs blindingly fast (well, it's a 10x but it's faster than I had originally expected
). If you have a second CD drive, then you could try using that instead.
