Whenever I try to burn a data DVD disc, k3b uses auto to set speed and I
must manually set it to 12x or k3b does not try to write disc. I have
the latest firware in drive (1.11 I believe), but I have always had
problems with burning dvd's with this drive.

Not that the drive may be malfuctioning, but that it is ALWAYS been slow
burning dvds. I read somewhere a long time ago that plextor doesn't like
the idea of free software, but don't know how valid it was. It takes me
20-30 mins to burn a data DVD (dvd5-4.4gigs). On Maxtor 16x dvd5 media.

I think back when I was using edgy, I download some kind of plextor
tools for these problems, but can't remember.

The drive is set to IDE master (with no other optical drive on cable
pata) on a i865 intel chipset.
