Can't burn CDs at a reasonable speed (cdrecord, 2.6.11 kernel).

I'm running a Debian testing system with the "2.6.11-1-686 #1" kernel and
packages cdrecord 2.01+01a01-2 and mkisofs 2.01+01a01-2.

The machine is "Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz" with 1GB RAM and a new
CD/DVD-burner (IDE on /dev/hda; the hard drive is SATA and appears
as /dev/sda), so I think I ought to be able to burn faster than 16X.

$ mkisofs -r -J -o foo.iso foodir
$ cdrecord -v speed=16 dev=ATA:0,0,0 foo.iso

If I specify a higher speed, cdrecord fails and I get a coaster.  I would
appreciate any suggestions for improving this.
