Think you may find m8 that the sony and the lite-on are the same drive but just badged under the sony name...i have 2 puters and the newest has a sony dvd in it and it is the same drive as my earlier lite-on but just badged under sony....lite-on are a prolifiic manufacturer of drives for a lot of different companies.

Another reason you may have is that you dvd reader is running as 'slave' drive on your hard drive ide cable so that may slow it down somewhat...but usualy it's down to you system you processor power and memory capacity....the machine can only process so much information so how fast your reader is won't make a great deal of difference.
