    You have probably got too many processes or programs running in the background. Make sure you have nothing else running - have a look at the task manager to see what is using your resources (Ctrl - Alt - Del)

    What was the buffer level doing? Make sure the drive isn't in PIO mode.

    buffer level wasn't constant...sometimes it was above 90% and sometimes it was below 20% ...continuous fluctuation was there
