BOTH MY DVD & CD drive can not faster than 2,788 kb/s

Recently, like about a month ago, suddenly my dvd-drive starts acting weird, I use dvd decrypter to make a back-up image of my dvd to the hd but it cannot read faster than 2,788kb/s, this is the same for my second drive, which is only a cd-r/w burner. Also when I burn data, or whatever using either my dvd to cd drive, it cannot burn faster than 2,788kb/s, and the buffer seems to keep fluxing from 100%-0% continuous, and the computer becomes extremely laggy. This has never happen before. I upgraded both my drive to their latest firmware. I am pretty sure it is not a virus or trojan problem, since I use AVG Free, Lava-soft Ad-ware, and Spybot to remove probably all of them. Also, I have NeroVision, which converts .avi into a dvd movie, but when it burns the dvd, it does not finish at all. It is almost like the dvd-burner cannot burn the film. I never had a problem with burning dvd movies at all until now. The DVD-Drive maximum speed is 8x while the cd-rw drive max is 40x. Here is a spec of my computer:
