    I am burning my p90x's to make back ups and take with my to my local gym, they don't have them yet,

    my DVD writer is writing at a max of 5!!! 5 speed come on man!!

    i am writing to an HP dvd+r

    is there a way to make it faster, or better yet:

    what mac friendly one can i purchase (ide) for a decent price and just slap it in and go?

    thanks, Really need to replace this piece of sloowww poo!

    How 'bout searching? Go to google and enter " slow pioneer dvr-112". The first result is a nice thread which answers both of your questions.

    You can just slap any DVD burner in your Mac and will work.

    But a flash usually works to remove any limitations set by the manufacture, ie Riplock.
