CD read slow

CD read slow

Hello Out there !

I'm having an odd problem with linux on my G4. When I read data from my CD.
Say "dd if=/dev/hdc of=/dev/null". It completely slows my system to the
point of being unusuable.
Is that a problem with LinuxPPC, with IDE CDROM Drives in general, or an
Apple problem.

Thanks for clues.




1. Won't read music CD, will read data cd?


I'm having a problem in Linux, happens with Mandrake or Red Hat, the
cdrom icon on the desktop allows me to mount normal data cdroms but won't
mount or read normal music CDs.
Has anyone else had this problem and can they please help me.
