  1. i have a tsstcorp cd/dvdw tsh552l burner. it burns cd's and dvd's fine and they playback ok on other players. but the burner plays all discs at about three-quarters speed and the audio is also as slow with a little reverb to it. i've checked the device manager and all the settings seem to be ok. i've cleaned the lens. i've uninstalled the driver and reinstalled after reboot. any ideas???

    How does the CPU usage look?
    Are these burned disks that are the problem? What about normal (stamped) disks?
    I guess if it burns fine the drive is in DMA mode rather than PIO, but you should check anyway.
    What software are you using?
    Have you switched mpeg2 codecs?
    Have you tried VLC for playback?
    Any other optical drives on the system to see if this is drive specific?
    Tried the drive in another computer?
    Tried the drive in another OS?
    Updated the drives firmware?

    Need at least some of these answered before any real help can be offered.

    I have a Sony DVD burner just for burning disks,
    I have a Sony DVD rom Player.They don't cost much and play fine.
    Also best for installing cd roms.
    What software are you useing for playing dvd's and cdroms ?
