A couple of reasons spring to mind.

A badly fragmented HD could be a cause of slow burning but the most likely is that for some reason DMA is no longer set to on (UDMA2 for a DVD writer, UDMA5+ for a HD).

I need to know some details.
What operating system?
What is your DVD Writer (Make & model) & when did you install it?

OK then.

Firstly defragging your HD. Open My Computer & right click on your HD. Select Properties & then Tools. Defragmentation is the 2nd option. You should do this regularly.

DMA problem (the most likely cause).
Go into control panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager. Expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.
You'll see Primary & Secondary Channels.
In turn double click each of these & take the Advanced Settings tab. There's a setting for the master & slave devices (device 0 & device 1). For any attached device transfer mode should be DMA if available & current transfer mode should be Ultra DMA (mode 5 or 6 for HD & 2 for DVD writer).
I would suspect that your DVD writer is showing PIO, and if it is then try to change to DMA if available.

Check & report back.
