Did you recently change brands of blank media your using, are you using the same exact blank medias?

No difference in discs,so I wonder if some sort of data transfer problem,since my rocketstick has slowed to 20 kb/s at best.My ext. drive and usb devices are very fast though.Does anyone know of a diagnoistic/test program for DVD-ROM drives?
