I am running a 486/dx4/100 with 24MB od RAM and a Cirrus video card with 2MB of DRAM and with Win95. I used to have a two speed CD-ROM and I bought a twelve speed. However, unfortunately, I can't see any difference in the speed I can access my CD's.  

Can anybody tell me what is the problem and how to fix this?

the only real difference I've noticed is when installing programs from cd. Then it should be much quicker.
programs that run from the cd make no use of the extra speed.
last I heard no program that ran from the cd actually needs more than a 2x or possibly 4x for some of the newer programs.

just make sure you have the latest drivers and in device manager set your cd cache for quad or higher.
