Im having problems with my CD Rom, Everytime i play a DVD it plays very slowly. Is there some reason why this is happening?
Any help would be appreciated.

You're doing well to play a DVD in a CD-ROM drive, even if it is playing slowly, chadman2003. Do you mean your DVD-ROM is playing slowly?

Yes thats what i meant

Do you have Nero?

You can test your CD/DVD-ROM's speeds with Test Drive if it is included in the package.

Which software are you using to play the DVD (a film??), PowerDVD, Windows Media Player, etc.? Check within the software that you are running at 1 x 1 speed rather than ½ or ¼ speed. Does a CD work/play at normal speed in the DVD drive?

Im using windows media player 10. How do i check how fast its running?

IIRC View>DVD features.

It should be detailed in WMP10's Help section.
