I have a issue with the dvd spin-down time, that is very short and thus extremely irritating.
When I browse some disc, dvd spins-up to full speed to read a file and after few (around 5) seconds without read request, it spins down (stops disc rotation). On next file that I want to browse, it starts to spin-up again, which takes some seconds. This is very annoying and time-consuming when browsing lots of files, but I was not able to increase the time that disk stays rotating.
I tried Nero DriveSpeed, but it was not able to help. I also found no help on the topic in the net.
Do you have idea how to increase this time?

"by going into system property and property for cd-drive, there is drop down menu for dvd speed."
- Which 'system property'? Do you mean 'Control Panel->System->Device manager' ? Or Exploder->properties of dvd-drive letter?
I can assure I've never seen drop-down for spin-down time in a Windows XP itself.
