My 1st post here and I was wondering if other owners of 163D are experiencing the same thing. I ran Nero CD Speed on a newly purchased 163D and noticed a sudden drop off in read speed mid way through a 700MB CDR. The read speed had steadily climbed from initially 22x to around 41x before dropping down to 11x. It then climbed back up a bit to 26x and then dropped off again.
Tried other CD's on 163D and the same exact thing happened. No read speed problems whatsoever with 40125W.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
