Ok why does it work fine with the 03 firmware? But not with other firmwares. (and yes with the same settings)
And yes i have burned dvd with NERO (if you read my first post), works fine in 4x and 8x with firmware 03 but not with others.
There was not a problem “some time ago” I just wondered what lead in and out was that has nothing to do with my problem with firmwares.
I’m having the same problem as you are, although I haven’t tried the 03 firmware. I’ve tried most of the recent ones, including the current V04 from the 832 drive. Extraction is slow – it seems like EAC doesn’t properly spin up the drive. I say that because when I extract with Easy CD-DA Extractor and rip at max speed, it rips it quite fast and I can hear the usual drive spin up. If I do this, cancel the rip, and then go back to EAC and rip, it rips at the proper speed of ~10.0x. This makes me wonder if it’s the firmware or EAC…I sure hope it’s the firmware, because we all know how often EAC is updated.
I posted this same problem on the EAC forums hoping for a response. No luck yet.
I’ve actually just confirmed that audio extraction with Exact Audio Copy works perfectly with the US03 firmware, but nothing later. I sent an email to LiteOn detailing the problem and hopefully they will look into the issue and see whether it’s a firmware or EAC issue.
