You can go to device manager and click on the device then uninstall> restart your system and windows should re-install the drivers.

Un-installed the CD and re-installed it. Had to remove it from Device manager as recommended and it works allot better now.

Thanks for all the suggestions!!

That's the first I've ever heard of this. Some older programs couldn't see a burner on an AHCI controller, but that was first fixed with drivers, and now doesn't seem to be an issue at all. However, it was never about performance. I've only used Samsung drives for the past 5 years or so, but using about 20 SATA drives in various builds, all on AHCI, I've never had an issue.

Do you have a link to describe this behavior?

It may not be the drive that is bad. What type of HD are you using? green HD's are slow and can give such a problem or maybe some other hardware or software issue may be causing you problems. I saw in your Device Manager picture that one piece of hardware is not correctly detected. Make sure you have the newest drivers for you hardware and chipset, don't use the drivers on the CD that comes with your hardware, go directly to the hardware maker and download the newest. It could also be BIO settings since this is a new build, I doubt that your DVD is bad so check things over starting with your BIOs.
