Any computer store around here, or online, will have 52x cdrw's for cheap.
But, if it's a case of the Roxio software having compatiblity issues with XP, try installing Nero, and see if that works for you.
Is that one of their DVD/CDRW combo drives? If so, the desktop models blow. The laptop models aren't much better (16x burns just as fast as 24x ... only without the 50% failure rate that 24x burning has). That's not to say ALL DVD/CDRW combo drives suck ass, just the ones Dell uses. They're cheap as fuck, and it shows.
